The International Rubber Study Group (IRSG), in collaboration with APABOR, is organising a webinar with
the theme: Innovation and Growth Opportunities for Rubber in Latin America.
Historically, Latin America has played a very important role in the natural rubber development. Brazil was
once the only rubber producer in the world, way back when natural rubber was produced only as an
extractive product out of the Amazon jungle.
During this webinar you will get an overview of the recent developments in the natural rubber economy of
Latin America, an insight on how innovation could play an important role to achieve real sustainability in the
region, and learn about the potential market developments for Latin America’s natural rubber.
