 I am happy to announce the launch of the revamped website of the Rubber Board. Our previous version of the website was much accepted and appreciated by the public, especially all the stakeholders. Technology, however, continues to develop offering new tools to make the services more effective and to help in carrying our message to wider audiences. The site has so been revamped in accordance with the instructions and suggestions from the Ministry of Commerce and Industry and with the help of National Informatics Centre in an effort to make it more user friendly, service oriented and communicative. The new website has a fresh layout and design to make it more aesthetically appealing. It is optimised to view it in multiple devices and to facilitate easy access. The site contains integrated social media links for Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for easy communication with the stakeholders.

Continuous and constant updation in all aspects is an integral part of revamping of any website. We are grateful to all who have given us feedback about design and content. I also take this opportunity to congratulate all those who contributed to make the website more effective and appealing.
