Malaysia's palm oil stockpile rose 6.97 percent to 2.73 million ton in December 2017, from 2.55 million ton in November, said the Malaysian Palm Oil Board's (MPOB) Wednesday.

According to MPOB, the crude palm oil (CPO) production fell 5.59 percent month-on-month to 1.83 million ton in December last year.
