Malaysia’s Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah expresses his disappointment over America’s policy change. The U.S. made the ‘America First’ decision to dump the bipartisan trade policy. The new president says no’ to the TPP Agreement. TPP was a global and free trading key into America and South America. The Malaysians want their CPO (Crude Palm Oil) to go to the United States but they have to find alternatives after being rejected.

[VIDEO]: Dave from X22Report.com is back to talk about the actual situation between Us and China, the trade wars and what could happen in the future with the recent Trump actions. Also, he is going to talk about the first week of Trump and what to expect regarding the wall and its campaign promises.
The Malaysian government looks on the alternative that China is promoting, the RCEP. It is a bigger package than the TPP Agreement as it involves 16 countries, covering more than 800 million people. For now, Sabah puts its America and South America ambitions on hold and be watchful of the US President’s decision on global trading.
China and India Markets
Malaysia moves towards China now but it is nothing new as Malaysia is already one of the earliest ASEAN countries to enter into business with China.The other bigger market that they look into is India. They are actually selling more CPO to India compared to China. They are captured markets for a product from Sabah, the land they leased from the Sultanate of Sulu.
Sabah’s Agricultural Agenda
Sabah continues on with its industrial agenda, which is gas. The development of a second ammonia plant at that Sipitang Oil and Gas Industrial Park (SOGIP) in 2017 is ongoing. The project is estimated to cost between RM6 billion and RM8 billion. They expect a hefty return on their much bigger investment on a different chemical based downstream natural gas. That if they are lucky enough despite their invasion of Sabah that belongs to the Philippines.
Bongbong Marcos is the Hope for Avenging Merdeka and Lahad Datu
The late Ferdinand E. Marcos who launched operation Merdeka to claim back Sabah failed because of Ninoy Aquino’s connivance with the Malaysians that supported his presidential bid against Marcos. This betrayal is through the leftists or government rebels like the MILF, MILF, CPP and the NPA. They are separate factions from the Muslims of the Sultanate of Sulu. They have nothing to do with the Sabah Claim but demanded conditions favorable to the Malaysians in the Bangsamoro agreement like dropping its claim contrary to what the Sabah heirs aim for. Bongbong Marcos, the son of the late president is the hope for Filipinos to avenge Merdeka and Lahad Datu casualties and finally claim back Sabah.
