Tocom RSS3 rubber futures are higher in slow trade amid a public holiday in China.


Prices are getting support from discussions between major producing countries about the depressed market; the International Rubber Consortium says on its website that a ministerial meeting between Thailand and Malaysian Monday emphasized concerted action and measures to improve rubber prices to “a fair level” as the current price is below the cost of production.
