Singapore, Cambodia, and Sierra Leone, and become the world's first 
multinational company with the largest area of rubber planting and trade 
volume. So far in 2018, its overseas revenue has accounted for more than 80 
percent of its total.

international tropical agricultural products will continuously improve the 
trading mechanism, strengthen the construction of digital platform, and 
optimize the mode of service, so as to introduce more tropical agricultural 
products from Hainan and overseas countries onto the platform for trading.
