What are the four benefits members can enjoy?
Access to Authentic Information
on Natural Rubber Industry
The Association has the following four technical committees/groups:
• Information and Statistics Committee
• Industry Matters Committee
• Working Group of Experts for Demand-Supply Analysis
• Expert Group on Project on Promotion of Natural Rubber as an Environment-friendly Raw Material and Renewable Resource
ANRPC brings together expert representatives from Member Countries across various committees and groups, fostering valuable networking opportunities and knowledge sharing. As the fastest and most reliable data source in the natural rubber industry, ANRPC covers comprehensive statistics and updates in all Member Countries, relying exclusively on official data from the respective governments involved.
Facilitates Promotion of Natural Rubber Exports
ANRPC facilitates the promotion of natural rubber exports from Member Countries by featuring their exporters in the Association's freely accessible directory on the website, benefiting both individual suppliers and the countries in promoting their export capabilities.
Gets a Role in Formulating Common Policies on Issues Confronting NR Producers
ANRPC facilitates policy formulation and collective bargaining on common issues confronting rubber production sector. One of the current priorities of the ANRPC is getting eligibility for rubber plantations for receiving credit under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of Kyoto Protocol relating to climate change.
Natural rubber producing countries face a range of challenges including labor shortages, high costs, limited land availability, inadequate infrastructure, low productivity, and the impacts of climate change. Joint efforts through an inter-governmental body are essential for Member Governments to tackle these challenges effectively.
Opportunity for Exposure Visits
Officials in Member Governments and rubber industry stakeholders in Member Countries get valuable exposure by participating in the events of the ANRPC which are organized annually in different Member Countries. The annual events are usually followed by an exposure visit to rubber plantations, nurseries and processing factories in the country where the events are held.
