GPCA to host 2nd supply chain conference.

The Gulf Petrochemical and Chemical Association (GPCA) is organising its second Supply Chain Conference in Bahrain from October 24 to 26.

Industry leaders from the Gulf and Global chemical and petrochemical communities will gather to discuss all aspects of the supply chain.

Issues that will be discussed include transporting liquid and bulk chemical products via land or sea, global standards and regulations, what the Middle East chemical companies are doing to ensure supplies are delivered to export markets safely, and how companies can deliver their goods in a cost-effective and socially responsible manner, and more. At the Second GPCA Supply Chain Conference, delegates will discuss and debate issues related to the opportunities and challenges within this industry. The conference will be addressed by 12 prominent speakers from the Gulf and other parts of the world in four sessions over two days.

The theme of the conference this year will be "Serving Vibrant Global Markets," and the focusing on analysing the implications for Gulf supply chain management.

The conference's objective is to analyse the current landscape of the supply chain industry on a regional level, and what can be done to give this industry the proper atmosphere to grow rapidly and effectively cater to the massive expansion drive in the petrochemical and chemical production capacities in the Gulf region.

"The development of a world-class supply chain industry in the Gulf region had been one of the critical contributors to the successful development of a globally competitive industry in our region. This success is demonstrated by the fact that the Gulf region's share of total global output is currently 16 per cent and this will grow to 20 per cent by the year 2015," stated Dr Abdulwahab Al Sadoun, secretary general of GPCA.- TradeArabia News Service
