Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia -- The Association of Natural Rubber Producing Countries (ANRPC) has set up a new website which contains much of the organisation's data as well as background on the organisation.
ANRPC is an inter-governmental organisation established in 1970. Membership is open to the governments of countries producing natural rubber. As on 30 November 2009, the ANRPC had 10 Members which are governments of Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam. These 10 countries accounted for about 94 per cent of the global production of natural rubber during 2008.
The mission statement says ANRPC aims to, "continuously improve productivity of rubber holdings, reduce cost, increase value addition in downstream rubber sector, explore sources of ancillary income, capitalize on eco-friendly credentials of natural rubber and thereby improve the well-being of rubber farmers."
