Jakarta--Latest figures from Gapkindo, the Indonesian rubber organisation, show that Indonesia exported 1.7 million tonnes of natural rubber in the first 10 months of 2004. That compares with 1.58 million tonnes in the whole of 2003. In 2004, China accounts for 20 percent of all Indonesia's rubber exports, while India accounts for 10 percent.
Gapkindo chairman Asril Sutan Amir was quoted as saying 2005 exports to China and India where demand for that commodity rose by 7 per cent-8 per cent annually, would increase above 2004 levels.
