December 16/2010

(Ameinfo) -- Oman's chemicals and plastics capacity will increase by 60% to reach 8.5 million tons in 2012 according to the organisers of ArabPlast 2011, the Middle East's No 1 trade show for rubber, plastics and petrochemicals, which will be held from January 8 to 11, 2011, at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.

The sultanate is one of the biggest players in the petrochemical industry in the region, with a global reach spanning 150 countries, according to Mr. Satish Khanna, General Manager of Al Fajer Information & Services, Dubai, co-organiser of ArabPlast 2010.

One of the largest participants at ArabPlast is Oman Polypropylene LLC (OPP). The OPP plant is also meant to serve as a platform for further downstream polypropylene converting industries to create jobs and business opportunities in Oman.

A record number of companies are participating in ArabPlast 2011, a reflection on the growing importance attached by GCC countries to strengthening their manufacturing industries, including plastics and rubber sectors.
