The support from Malaysia’s Ministry of Transport and also the sponsoring from Malaysian Rubber Board (MRB) have given a boost to the second Asian Retread Conference (ARC 2018), which will be held at Sime Darby Convention Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on October 2-3, 2018. YB Dato’ Kamarudin Jaffar, Deputy Minister of Transport Malaysia, will be delivering the opening address on the morning of Oct. 2.

The participation of YB Dato’ Kamarudin Jaffar in the opening session of ARC 2018 reflects the keenness of the ministry to campaign for road safety.

MRB is the Corporate Sponsor of ARC 2018. With its various forward looking initiatives to develop Malaysia’s rubber industry, MRB is active part of the country’s economic growth. The Board’s support for the conference has increased ARC’s profile. There are four speakers from MRB, making presentations in various technical sessions.

The theme of ARC 2018 – “Better, Faster, Cheaper” – is a wake-up call to the industry to sit up and take notice of what lies in its future.

The conference brings together some of the leading global players in tyre retreading under one roof to focus on how could the win-win features of the industry be used to take it back to where it should be.
