Malaysia’s rubber products exports have seen a significant jump in first three quarters of 2021, despite uncertainties brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

Exports of rubber and rubber products increased 70.7% year-on-year to RM37 billion (€7.8 billion) over the first nine months of the year, said a report by the Malaysian Rubber Council 22 Dec.
