A group from Sri Lanka seeks funding from U.S. companies for a new line of natural rubbers and investment in their country for processing and compounding factories. A contingent from the Sri Lanka Rubber Cluster, formed in 2000, arrived in Akron to discuss opportunities in Sri Lanka with prospective investors and possible joint venture partners. The group, which visited polymer firms in New Jersey before the trip to Ohio, promoted its line of premium-quality, ultra-light-colored latex crepe rubbers with firms in both states and later in Indiana. Members of the cluster made up primarily of plantation owners, university professors and government economic development representatives.
