Hanoi (VNA) - Malaysia's natural rubber production was 46,881 tonnes in February, down 29.2 percent from the previous month and 20.6 percent compared to the same period last year, according to the Malaysian Statistics Department.

The decline was due to the annual wintering period that typically falls between February and May.

Meanwhile, the country's natural rubber exports surged 13.1 percent month on month to 51,852 tonnes in February.

China remains the top natural rubber importer of Malaysia, accounting for 47.1 percent of the total exports in the month. This was followed by Germany (9.7 percent) and Iran (4.1 percent).

The natural rubber stocks stood at 288,586 tonnes in February, an increase of 2.7 percent from January./.
