The Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) represents the downstream hydrocarbon industry in the Arabian Gulf. the industry makes up the second largest manufacturing sector in the region, producing up to US$97.3billion worth of products a year. GPCA was established in 2006 and it voices the common interests of more than 230 member companies from the chemical and allied industries, accounting for over 95% of chemical output in the Gulf region.
Committed to providing a regional platform for stakeholders from across the industry, the GPCA manages six working committees – Plastics, Supply Chain, Fertilizers, International Trade, Research and Innovation, and Responsible Care – and organizes six world-class events each year. The association also publishes an annual report, regular newsletters and reports. As the petrochemical industry expands its global trade, the need for a platform to establish unanimous environmental regulations, encourage cooperation and ultimately find viable solutions for all parties involved is more urgent than ever. The GPCA aims to deal with these issues and invites government officials, legal service providers, traders and corporate representatives to understand resolutions going forward.
Organized in association with the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) and the American Chemistry Council (ACC), the workshop aims to provide the regional industry a platform for gaining knowledge of key trade issues and solutions focused on the importance of industry coordination. Visitors will also hear from leading global and regional companies who have integration within their facilities and they will address their experiences of managing the refinery petrochemical interface.
