KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (July 9)—The final meeting of the council of the International Natural Rubber Organization is scheduled for the week of July 23, according to Clifford Raisch, INRO assistant buffer stock manager in the U.S. Arch Roberts Jr., CEO and buffer stock manager for the 20-year-old international rubber price stabilization organization, will present his final report at the meeting, detailing INRO's dissolution. The council also will consider any outstanding issues not covered in the report. INRO voted to dissolve in 1999 after Malaysia and Thailand resigned, and by April 2001—two months ahead of its self-imposed schedule—it had sold off its approximately 138,000 metric tons of stockpiled rubber.
