Asia, specifically China is the leading producer of resins for the global PET industry, and increased capacities from new projects and return in demand levels are drawing international buyers seeking stable feedstock solutions.
The PETresin Xchange in Shanghai, China aims to focus on the role of China in the global PET trade, as well as provide insights on issues affecting supply and demand dynamics, and the impact of sustainability on packaging trends and the industry.
Among the prominent PET industry players who will be contributing is Mr. Henry Lin, Manager of Export Department, China Resources Packaging Materials Co., Ltd. He will share his perspective on the "Competitiveness of China's PET Industry and Challenges as Global Supplier", touching on trade and raw material challenges and China's potential in PET export in the long run.
The conference will also see key local PET converters engaging in a panel discussion addressing optimal purchasing processes in "Managing Procurement in a Fluctuating PET Market". Moderated by a representative from GSI China, top speakers include Shanghai Zijiang Enterprise Group Co., Zhuhai Zhongfu Enterprise Co, and Sino-Belgium Beer (Suzhou).
