The 10th GPCA PlastiCon will be held under the patronage of H.E. Shaikh Mohammed bin Khalifa bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, Minister of Oil, Bahrain.
With single use plastics coming under increased attack, the regional industry is awakening to a new reality, one where sustainability is at the core of everything we do. From helping global brand owners move to fully recycled and recyclable packaging to ensuring sustainable export growth and job creation for the region’s youth and promoting the establishment of a robust plastics recycling and reuse industry, the region as we know it is beginning to transform.
The question of what the future holds, and how this transition can be achieved will be addressed during the 10th GPCA PlastiCon held under the theme ‘Innovative Plastic Designs: Sustainability for Future Generations’.
“PlastiCon is an important platform where the industry gathers together to exchange their experiences and concerns, and discuss the opportunities and threats facing the industry today.”
Ahmed Omar Abdulla, CEO, Borouge and Chairman, Plastics Committee, GPCA
“I would like to thank GPCA for the excellent organization of the event, and in specific – the level of seniority we have in the room, which both showcases and reflects the important role that GPCA plays on a global level in driving industry growth and sustainability.”
