Arab Federation of Paper to move Gulf office to Jeddah

CAIRO, September 11, 2018

The Middle East Paper Company (Mepco), a leading regional paper manufacturer, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Arab Federation for Paper, Printing and Packaging Industries to move the latter's Gulf regional headquarters to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The MoU was signed during the 10th Middle East International Exhibition for Paper, Board, Tissue, Printing & Packaging Industry (Paper ME), currently under way in Cairo, Egypt.
Commenting on the agreement, Engineer Sami Safran, CEO of Mepco, said: "We believe that the Arab Federation for Paper, Printing and Packaging Industries plays an effective role in this sector. We aim to strengthen the mechanisms of Arab collaboration in our sector, and as a first step the relocation of the federation's regional office in the GCC to Mepco's headquarters in Jeddah will enhance its ability to provide benefits and value-added services to all regional companies operating in the paper and packaging industries. 
"Such support will include the provision of statistics, research and reports, cooperating with similar organisations around the world and with the technical and economic Arab bodies to fully integrate the region’s paper, printing and packaging industries," he said.
Eng. Safran continued: "We are pleased to participate in the 10th edition of Paper ME in Egypt, which with its leading position in the industry attracts more than 400 paper and packaging exhibitors from across the Middle East, encouraging companies to actively contribute to the development of the federation."
Mepco is the leading vertically-integrated paper manufacturer in the Middle East, offering a diverse range of containerboard and specialty paper products serving the packaging, construction, furniture, and paper core industries around the world.  - TradeArabia News Service
