VIDEO: Rubber factory in Western

A Rubber processing factory will soon be opened in Western province to benefit rubber farmers within the Community Mine Continuation Agreement.

A ground breaking ceremony was held in Aiambak, Middle Fly District, in September where the factory will sit to signal the commencement of construction expected to begin at the end of the year.

The initiative is part of the Ok Tedi Development FoundationsLivelihood Development Package program, a strategy to ensure sustainable economic activities continue well after the life of the mine.

The program includes other products such as rice and eaglewood.
