A coordination meeting takes place for SNR initiative and criteria on 16-17 August in Yangon.

Myanmar Sustainable Natural Rubber Association pointed out that Myanmar’s rubber production needs to strictly follow the Sustainable Natural Rubber (SNR) guideline in order to grasp a firm market share in the competitive international market.
Only natural rubber manufactured as per the SNR guideline can be placed in the international rubber market in 2030. Therefore, Myanmar’s rubber industry is required to conform to the SNR guideline.
Myanmar Sustainable Natural Rubber Association and Myanmar KOEI International Limited organized a coordination meeting at Summit Park View Hotel in Yangon on 16-17 August to develop a sustainable natural rubber initiative and set up principles to meet SNR criteria. Chair and executives of the rubber associations from states and regions, MSR Crumb factories and exporters attended that two-day meeting.
Dr Mya Han, vice-president of the Union of Myanmar Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry gave an opening remark. Dr Yu Sein, chair of Myanmar Sustainable Natural Rubber Association discussed principles for Myanmar’s rubber to be SNR with greater consistency. Consultants from Myanmar KOEI International Limited also elaborated on the development prospects of Myanmar’s rubber industry, requirements and standards.
The United Nations adopted sustainable development goals that set out a framework of 17 goals in 2016 for social, economic and environmental aspects. To implement the goals, World Business Council for Sustainable Development laid down guidelines to assess environmental and human rights impacts as industrial rubber plantations for the tyre industry linked to deforestation, biodiversity risks and rubber supply chains. — NN/EM
