Rubber processing enterprises of the southeastern region said that farmers have earned profit with the current price after long- lasting low rubber latex prices.
The prices have started rising as the four biggest rubber export countries as Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Malaysia reduced production output; and man- made mineral oil prices increased.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, total export turnover of the fresh natural rubber of Vietnam reached US$ 1.66 billion.
And, total export turnover of Vietnam from rubber products such as tire, accessories and conveyor belt reached US$ 1.5 billion and products from rubber tree wood earned US$ 1.2 billion.
