Cambodia to gain from rubber

C ambodia is expected to reap increasing revenues from rubber as world market prices

continue to rise, government officials said at the close of the third ASEAN Rubber

Conference. Deputy Prime Minister Sok An said the price of rubber had quadrupled

over the past seven years and the trend should continue. Cambodia is one of 23 rubber-producing

countries with annual exports of about 40,000 tons - only 0.46 percent of world production

- but Sok An said the Kingdom had great potential for increased revenues with greater

private investment in rubber production.
