This chapter attempts to delineate a model of resource-based industrialization by focusing on the experience of the Malaysian palm oil industry. The chapter examines how the palm oil industry upgraded its exports from crude palm oil to processed palm oil and became the world’s largest producer and exporter of palm oil for over 40 years until Indonesia surpassed it in the mid-2000s. It is true that Malaysia is blessed with suitable natural conditions for oil palm cultivation. However, the chapter argues that these are necessary, but not sufficient, conditions for successful development and it stresses the importance of other factors such as government policies, technological features specific to the industry, and changing circumstances in the world economy.
