Palm Oil Production
Apparently the palm oil trees don't grow well in the soil of Sarawak. Thailand is eyeing palm oil production, and is using Malay expertise in its exploration of the possibility. I would expect Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam to follow suit.
Keep in mind that cultivation of the Indochina area was beginning under the French prior to World War II. I believe rubber was the primary crop in those days, but I could be mistaken. Many of those plantations were lost to rainforest in the decades of war that followed.
