Viet Nam's daily export of latex to China through the
Mong Cai border gate has been ranging between
1,000-1,300 tonnes since the beginning of this year,
at prices ranging from US$1,600-1,800/tonne, reported
the Ministry of Trade.
Chinese enterprises' increasing demand for latex has
led to a rise in Viet Nam's exports, the ministry added.
The Ministry predicts that Viet Nam's latex export
price will remain high due to the great demand from
the US, France, China, Japan and the Republic of Korea.
Viet Nam is now among the fourth largest latex
exporting countries in the world.
