1 1 The Thai Rubber Industry and Its Role in Regional Cooperation By Sang Udomjarumani CEO, International Rubber Consortium, Limited CEO, International Rubber Consortium, Limited For presentation at the ASEAN RUBBER CONFERENCE 2007 The InterContinental Phnom Penh, Cambodia The InterContinental Phnom Penh, Cambodia June 2007

2 2 FOREWORD THIS PAPER WILL FOCUS ON DEVELOPMENT OF THAI RUBBER INDUSTRIES, COVERING THE PERIOD FROM THE YEAR 1996, ONE YEAR BEFORE THE ASIAN FINANCIAL CRISIS UNTIL 2006, 11 YEARS OF RUBBER HISTORY WHEN THAILAND IS RECOVERING FROM THE AFTERMATH OF THE CRISIS. THE PRICE OF RUBBER WAS AT ITS HISTORICAL LOW AT THE END OF 2001, PROMPTING THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE THREE MAJOR PRODUCERS TO GET TOGETHER TO INK THE BALI DECLARATION, A TRIPARTITE COOPERATION THAT LED TO THE FORMATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL TRIPARTITE RUBBER COUNCIL AND INTERNATIONAL RUBBER CONSORTIUM. SINCE THEN, THE RUBBER INDUSTRY HAS ENJOYED AN UNPRECEDENTED CONTINUOUS LONG PERIOD OF PRICE BOOM, GIVING RISE TO PLENTY OF UNCONTROLLED NEW RUBBER PLANTING, BOTH IN THAILAND AND NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES, WHICH IS SEEN BY MANY AS A POTENTIAL TIME BOMB FOR FUTURE TROUBLE. ONLY REGIONAL COOPERATION AND GOVERNMENT FORESIGHT CAN AVERT THE RECURRANCE OF THE PAST CRISIS.

3 3 OVERVIEW Thailand is presently worlds No.1 NR producer. Total area under rubber cultivation is 2.29 million hectares, about 95 percent are small-holdings. Total income from NR and NR products in 2006 was 8.5 billion US dollars. 89 percent of the total production were exported in the form of NR raw materials, only 11 percent were consumed domestically. About 1 million families are engaged either directly or indirectly in rubber production. Income from NR and NR related industries in 2006 contributed to 4.1 percent of the total GDP.

25 25 PRESENT SITUATION THE PLANTATION SECTOR THE PLANTATION SECTOR HAS NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD BEFORE, ENJOYING A CONTINUOUS FIVE-YEAR BOOM IN RUBBER PRICES. DAY-TO-DAY FARM GATE PRICES RECEIVED BY FARMERS ARE THE HIGHEST AMONG THE PRODUCING COUNTRIES. BESIDES THE GOVERNMENT SPONSORED RUBBER PROJECT IN THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST, GOOD RUBBER PRICES HAVE INDUCED UNCONTROLLED NEW PLANTING, WHICH IS SAID TO BE MUCH HIGHER THAN THOSE SPONSORED BY THE GOVERNMENT. DOUBLE TAPPING, PREMATURE TAPPING, PLANT SLAUGHTERING AND UNCONTROLLED USE OF STIMULANTS BY FARMERS DUE TO LACK OF PROPER GUIDANCE ARE RAMPANT AND WILL HAVE SERIOUS REPERCUSSION IN THE LONG RUN. GOOD RUBBER PRICES HAD ALSO CAUSED A DRASTIC REDUCTION IN THE APPLICATION FOR REPLANTING. THE PUBLIC SECTOR HAS BECOME COMPLACENT BECAUSE OF THE HIGH RUBBER PRICES. TERRORISM IN THE 3 SOUTHERNMOST PROVINCES THREATENS TO DISRUPT PRODUCTION.

26 26 PRESENT SITUATION ( CONTINUED ) THE MIDSTREAM INDUSTRIES MAJOR FUNCTION – FINANCING, PROCESSING, MARKETING, QUALITY ASSURANCE, BEARING RISKS OF MARKET VOLATILITY AND PROVIDING EMPLOYMENT TO LOCAL COMMUNITY. OVER CAPACITY – A TOTAL PRODUCTION CAPACITY OF 5.5 MILLION TONS COMPETING FOR 3.0 MILLION TONS OF RAW MATERIALS. RISING RUBBER PRICES CAUSING CASH-FLOW PROBLEMS. STRENGTHENING THAI BAHT - A SERIOUS CONCERN FOR THE EXPORT SECTOR. HIGH VOLATILITY INFLUENCED BY HEDGE-FUNDS AND SPECULATORS – PRODUCERS HAVE NO CONTROL OVER RUBBER PRICES. HIGH RISKS CAUSED BY VOLATILITY IN THE MARKET. SHORTAGE OF LABOR. INCREASING PRODUCTION COSTS.

28 28 PRESENT SITUATION ( CONTINUED ) THE DOWNSTREAM INDUSTRIES MANUFACTURERS OF A VARIETY OF RUBBER-BASED PRODUCTS FROM AUTOMOBILE TIRES TO CONDOMS. RISING COST OF PRODUCTION DUE TO SOARING RAW MATERIAL PRICES. STRONG FOREIGN COMPETITION HAS GIVEN RISE TO PRICE CUTTING. WEAK FOREIGN MARKET – FOREIGN MARKET PRICES FOR RUBBER PRODUCTS CANNOT KEEP PACE WITH HIGHER RAW MATERIAL PRICES. EXCEPT THE TIRE SECTOR AND A FEW LARGE GLOVE AND THREAD MANUFACTURERS, MANY OF THE DOWNSTREAM INDUSTRIES ARE NOW FACING PROBLEMS OF OUT-DATED MACHINERIES AND RUN- DOWN FACTORIES. LACK OF INNOVATION AND NEW DEVELOPMENT IN TECHNOLOGY. DOMESTIC RUBBER INDUSTRIES HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO TAKE OFF AS CAN BE SEEN FROM THE LOW RATIO OF DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION. THE PUBLIC SECTOR HAS YET TO COME UP WITH A COMPREHENSIVE LONG-TERM MASTER PLAN FOR THE INDUSTRIES.

30 30 PROSPECT OF DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION HAS REMAINED STAGNANT AT BELOW 11 PERCENT DURING THE PAST FEW YEARS. ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNMENT ROADMAP, DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION WILL INCREASE TO 16 PERCENT OF PRODUCTION IN UNDER THE PRESENT ECONOMIC CONDITION, THE GROWTH TARGET MAY BE DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE AS ANTICIPATED. GIVEN A FAVORABLE ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT, INVESTMENT IN TIRE AND AUTOMOBILE PRODUCTION WILL INCREASE, FUELING RAPID GROWTH IN DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION. GOVERNMENTS PLAN TO BOOST DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION TO PERCENT OF PRODUCTION IN THE NEXT DECADE MAY SOUND TOO AMBITIOUS FOR THE MOMENT.

31 31 THE PUBLIC SECTOR THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD COME UP WITH SOME FEASIBLE POLICY GUIDELINES FOR RUBBER. THE LONG AWAITED THAI RUBBER BOARD SHOULD BE SET UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THE PUBLIC SECTOR NEEDS MORE PROFESSIONALISM IN HANDLING RUBBER ISSUES. GOOD RUBBER PRICES SHOULD NOT GIVE RISE TO COMPLACENCY. THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD QUICKLY COME UP WITH A LONG-TERM PRODUCTION MASTER PLAN. THE LEADERSHIP SHOULD POSSESS VISION AND A CLEAR DIRECTION FOR THE FUTURE.

32 32 REGIONAL COOPERATION THAILAND IS ACTIVELY PARTICIPATING AS A KEY PLAYER IN VARIOUS REGIONAL FORUMS AMONG THE ASEAN COUNTRIES. FOLLOWING ARE SOME OF THE REGIONAL ORGANIZATIONS THAT THAILAND PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE: IRCO – THE INTERNATIONAL RUBBER CONSORTIUM, LIMITED. IRCO WAS ESTABLISHED IN THE YEAR A JOINT VENTURE COMPANY ESTABLISHED BY THE THREE MAJOR RUBBER PRODUCING COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD, THAILAND, INDONESIA AND MALAYSIA, IT IS CHARGED WITH THE MANDATE TO IMPLEMENT STRATEGIC MARKET OPERATION TO SUSTAIN RUBBER PRICES REMUNERATIVE TO THE FARMERS AND AT THE SAME TIME FAIR TO THE COMSUMERS.

33 33 REGIONAL COOPERATION (CONTINUED) ITRC – THE INTERNATIONAL TRIPARTITE RUBBER COUNCIL. A REGIONAL INTER-GOVERNMENT BODY ESTABLISHED UNDER THE BALI DECLARATION IN DECEMBER, 2001 BY THE THREE MAJOR RUBBER PRODUCING COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD, NAMELY, THAILAND, INDONSIA AND MALAYSIA, IT IS CHARGED WITH THE RESPONSIBILITY TO LOOK AFTER THE SMS (SUPPLY MANAGEMENT SCHEME) AND THE AETS (AGREED EXPORT TONNAGE SCHEME). BOTH SCHEMES ARE LONG-TERM PLANS BY THE THREE LARGEST NR PRODUCING COUNTRIES TO MONITOR CLOSELY THE SUPPLY DEMAND BALANCE OF NR AND ITS PRICE TRENDS AND TO ENSURE ADEQUATE SUPPLY TO MEET THE DEMAND OF THE WORLD WITHOUT SACRIFICING THE INTEREST OF THE FARMERS. VIETNAM WILL SOON BECOME THE 4 TH MEMBER OF THIS ORGANIZATION.

34 34 REGIONAL COOPERATION (CONTINUED) ANRPC – ASSOCIATION OF NATURAL RUBBER PRODUCING COUNTRIES. A REGIONAL ORGANIZATION COMPRISING MEMBERS FROM 8 MAJOR NR PRODUCING AND TRADING COUNTRIES, NAMELY, THAILAND, INDONESIA, MALAYSIA, VIETNAM, INDIA, SRI LANKA, PAPUA NEW GUINEA AND SINGAPORE. THE ORGANIZATION HAS THE OBJECTIVE TO BRING ABOUT CO-ORDINATION IN THE PRODUCTION AND MARKETING OF NATURAL RUBBER; TO PROMOTE TECHNICAL COOPERATION AMONG MEMBER COUNTRIES, AND TO BRING ABOUT REMUNERATIVE AND STABLE PRICES FOR NATURAL RUBBER. THE ORGANIZATION HAS ITS HEAD OFFICE IN KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA.

35 35 REGIONAL COOPERATION (CONTINUED) ARBC – ASEAN RUBBER BUSINESS COUNCIL. THAILAND IS AN ACTIVE AND FOUNDING MEMBER OF THIS ORGANIZATION. THE COUNCIL (FORMERLY KNOWN AS THE ASEAN RUBBER BUSINESS CLUB) PRESENTLY HAS SIX MEMBERS, COMPRISING TRADE ASSOCIATIONS OF THE MEMBER COUNTRIES, VIZ., THAILAND, INDONESIA, MALAYSIA, SINGAPORE, CAMBODIA AND VIETNAM. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE COUNCIL IS TO COLLECT, ANALYZE AND DISSEMINATE MARKET INFORMATION AND STATISTICS AND TO CONSIDER TRADE-RELATED ISSUES AFFECTING MEMBER COUNTRIES AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS TO THE MEMBERS FOR CONSIDERATION. THE COUNCIL RECENTLY INITIATED THE ARBC + 1 DIALAGUE WITH CHINA. THE COUNCIL MEETS TWO TO THREE TIMES A YEAR.

36 36 REGIONAL COOPERATION (CONTINUED) ANNUAL RUBBER DINNERS THESE ARE ANNUAL EVENTS ORGANIZED BY THE TRADE ASSOCIATIONS OF THE VARIOUS PRODUCING COUNTRIES. THESE ANNUAL DINNERS ARE HOSTED IN THE FOLLOWING SEQUENCE: SINGAPORE IN FEBRUARY OF EACH YEAR THAILAND IN APRIL/MAY OF EACH YEAR INDONESIA IN JULY/AUGUST OF EACH YEAR MALAYSIA IN OCTOBER/NOVEMBER OF EACH YEAR VIETNAM IN DECEMBER OF EACH YEAR A FRIENGLY GOLF TOURNAMENT IS USUALLY ORGANIZED AS A COMPLEMENTARY EVENT. CAMBODIA AS WELL AS INDIA ARE CONSIDERING TO HOST THEIR OWN ANNUAL DINNERS.

37 37 FUTURE CHALLENGES GOOD RUBBER PRICES HAVE GIVEN BIRTH TO MANY NEW CONTENDERS AND COMPETITORS. INDONESIA, THE PRESENT NO.2 LARGEST PRODUCER, IS ACCELARATING ITS RUBBER PRODUCTION AND IS EXPECTED TO OVERTAKE THAILAND AS THE WORLDS NO.1 PRODUCER IN VIETNAM, ANOTHER CONTENDER, IS STEPPING UP ITS NR PRODUCTION, NOT ONLY WITHIN ITS OWN TERRITORY, BUT ALSO AT THE NEIGHBORING LAOS AND CAMBODIA. TO MAINTAIN ITS POSITION AS THE LEADING PRODUCER OF NR, A COMPREHENSIVE LONG-TERM MASTER-PLAN HAS TO BE DRAWN UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. A STIMULUS PLAN FOR DOWNSTREAM INDUSTRIES IS URGENTLY NEEDED. WITHOUT PROPER CONTROL ON PRODUCTION, NR PRICES MAY BE DEPRESSED IN THE NEXT FIVE TO TEN YEARS. STRONGER REGIONAL COOPERATION IS ESSENTIAL TO SUSTAIN NR PRICES AT REMUNERATIVE LEVELS. FREQUENT DIALOGUE WITH CONSUMERS WILL CREATE BETTER UNDERSTANDING AND STRONGER PRODUCER/CONSUMER RELATIONSHIP.

38 38 CONCLUSION A FEW WORDS OF CAUTION HISTORY HAS TAUGHT US THAT WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN, SO WITH PRICE OF NRHISTORY HAS TAUGHT US THAT WHAT GOES UP MUST COME DOWN, SO WITH PRICE OF NR LOOKING AROUND THAILAND AND ACROSS THE BORDERS, THINGS DO NOT LOOK OPTIMISTICLOOKING AROUND THAILAND AND ACROSS THE BORDERS, THINGS DO NOT LOOK OPTIMISTIC ALL THE PAST WILL BE IRRELEVANT IF THINGS STILL CONTINUE THE WAY IT IS TODAYALL THE PAST WILL BE IRRELEVANT IF THINGS STILL CONTINUE THE WAY IT IS TODAY LOOKING AHEAD, I THINK… LONG TERM PLANNING TO ACHIEVE AN ORDERLY GROWTH OF NR PRODUCTION IS URGENTLY NEEDED TO AVERT A POSSIBLE RECURRANCE OF A 2001-LIKE CRISISLONG TERM PLANNING TO ACHIEVE AN ORDERLY GROWTH OF NR PRODUCTION IS URGENTLY NEEDED TO AVERT A POSSIBLE RECURRANCE OF A 2001-LIKE CRISIS REGIONAL COOPERATION TO ALERT THE NEW EMERGING RUBBER COUNTRIES TO BE AWARE OF THE THREATS OF A OVER-SUPPLY SITUATION IS ESSENTIALREGIONAL COOPERATION TO ALERT THE NEW EMERGING RUBBER COUNTRIES TO BE AWARE OF THE THREATS OF A OVER-SUPPLY SITUATION IS ESSENTIAL THE OVER ZEALOUS SENTIMENT PRESENTLY PREVAILING AMONG THE RUBBER GROWING WORLD IN THE REGION SHOULD BE REPLACED BY CAUTIOUS AND COORDINATED COLLECTIVE PLANNING AT REGIONAL LEVELTHE OVER ZEALOUS SENTIMENT PRESENTLY PREVAILING AMONG THE RUBBER GROWING WORLD IN THE REGION SHOULD BE REPLACED BY CAUTIOUS AND COORDINATED COLLECTIVE PLANNING AT REGIONAL LEVEL THE FUTURE ROADMAP FOR THE THAI RUBBER INDUSTRY IS CLEAR – VALUE CREATION THROUGH PROMOTION OF DOMESTIC RUBBER-BASED INDUSTRIES AND INCREASE DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION TO 30 PCT OF TOTAL PRODUCTION BEFORE 2020THE FUTURE ROADMAP FOR THE THAI RUBBER INDUSTRY IS CLEAR – VALUE CREATION THROUGH PROMOTION OF DOMESTIC RUBBER-BASED INDUSTRIES AND INCREASE DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION TO 30 PCT OF TOTAL PRODUCTION BEFORE 2020
