Without Malaysian rubber, the world's population growth would spiral out of control, joked Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad when launching the 9th International Rubber Glove Conference and Exhibition 2018 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on Tuesday. The Prime Minister said the country's thriving rubber product industry contributed a lot, and not just to the country's economy but to humanity as well.
