Rubber Industry

DAVAO CITY (PNA) - The hierarchy of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) has offered thousands of hectares of vast fertile lands for rubber plantations.

The ARMM rubber industry cluster presented during the recent workshop of the National Industry Cluster Capacity Enhancement Project (NICCEP), a joint project of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), is the region's potential in growing a rubber plantation.

In a report to the JICA consultants, the rubber industry cluster listed huge land areas for rubber as one of its "strengths" and a good opportunity for the industry to increase rubber production.

The ARMM rubber industry cluster also reported that the region's rich fertile soil, typhoon-free region, existing nursery operators supplying rubber tree seedlings, skilled workers, and a stable production system for rubber are among the factors ideal for rubber production.
