Chemical sector woos companies in India.

A TRADE group from the North East chemical sector will travel to India this week to promote industry from the region, following PM David Cameron's recent visit.

Twenty business people from the North East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC) will meet companies in the Dahej, Vapi and Mumbai regions to establish business links and promote the region as a place for investment.

The NEPIC has worked in partnership with the Indian Chemical Council to organise the sixth annual Indian chemical industry outlook conference in Mumbai. The two day conference, starting next Thursday, will be attended by over 100 industry CEOs from India and around the world.

Large international companies such as Reliance, Tata, United Phosphorous, Dow, DuPont and BASF will be represented.

Ian Swales, MP for Redcar, whose constituency is a significant location for the UK process industry, is joining the NEPIC trade mission. He is also chairman of the all-party parliamentary group for the chemical industry. Mr Swales said "I will be encouraging Indian companies to trade with UK companies, particularly those from North East England, as well as urging them to consider the UK as a place for their future investments.

"I am taking a message of support for the chemical sector from my Parliamentary and Government colleagues and will advise our Indian hosts that we can and will help them to establish businesses in the UK.".

Dr Stan Higgins, CEO of NEPIC, said of the trip: "Going to a new market with an experienced sector group is the best way of getting started."
