Doha, May 29, 2013
Qatar Chemical and Petrochemical Marketing and Distribution Company (Muntajat) and Qatar Petrochemical Company (Qapco) celebrated their successful joint participation at ‘ChinaPlas 2013’, the leading plastics and rubber trade fair in Asia.
ChinaPlas, held for the past 30 years in China, is one of the largest and most influential annual international trade exhibitions for plastics and rubber processing industries, gathering over 3,000 exhibitors and 100,000 visitors during 4 days.
This year, Qapco together with Muntajat consolidated the marketing and distribution efforts of the Qatar’s annual production of 10 million tons of chemicals and petrochemicals.
Muntajat has been mandated to market, sell and distribute Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) and other petrochemicals produced by Qapco. The onboarding of Qapco products is planned to be complete in a few months.
Qapco produces LDPE, which is one of the most commonly used type of plastics, with applications that are part of our daily lives, such as plastic films, food packaging, greenhouses, wires, cables and toys just to mention a few.
Qapco vice chairman and CEO Dr Mohammed Al Mulla said ChinaPlas is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the high quality of ‘Made in Qatar’ products. "Via our participation, we aim to demonstrate the competitive edge of Qatari products,” he added.
Dr Al Mulla pointed out that ChinaPlas is a highly strategic platform for Qatari products as major suppliers and users can meet, interact and exchange on the latest technologies and trends.
“Many suppliers and visitors showed a lot of interest in our products, which demonstrates the promising future of plastics produced in Qatar. It is tribute to the progress and excellence achieved by Qapco those past 40 years,” he added.
Commenting on Muntajat’s participation, CEO Abdulrahman Ali Al-Abdulla said, "After the successful transitions of the marketing and distribution activities of the chemicals and fertilisers produced in Qatar over the past four months, Muntajat is committed to implementing a seamless transition of Qatar’s export portfolio of polymers."
"In fact, Muntajat’s participation at ChinaPlas is another achieved milestone in the company’s strategic transitions plan which so far has resulted in the flawless onboarding of nearly 80 per cent of Qatar’s export portfolio of chemicals and petrochemicals," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
