ICIS at GPCA

Madinat Jumeirah Hotel, Dubai
27 – 29 November

ICIS seminar at GPCA: The threat to free trade and its impact on chemicals

Join ICIS Senior Consultant John Richardson on the 27 November at GPCA as he provides an in-depth overview of the threat to free trade and its impact on the GCC countries and chemicals markets. He will outline the most important factors affecting the petrochemicals industry including:

  • If the world moves away from free trade, how can GCC companies prepare for this eventuality?
  • As the nations and regions drive for self-sufficiency, what will be the impact on the petrochemicals upstream and downstream markets?
  • What are the market implications on china and the rest of developing world?
  • Will China continue its policy of moving to self-sufficiency in polyethylene, polypropylene, and in other petrochemicals and polymers in which it is in deficit?
