Planters ‘happy’ with rubber plan

Rubber planters are happy with the government’s decision to set aside a 5 billion baht loan to buy rubber from farmers to build roads and manufacture other items, the Thai-language Daily News reported yesterday (Dec 6, 2018).

According to the paper, the government is considering using para-rubber as an ingredient to build local roads. More than one million tons of para-rubber will be bought from planters under this project.

Rubber has already been used to manufacture surgical gloves and many other manufacturing items, said the paper.
