Iran is going to hold the biggest plastic and rubber international event of the middle east against the repercussions of the US unilaterally imposed sanctions on this sector last June.
Earlier this year the US administration issued a mandate that imposed sanctions on a petrochemical group in Iran. There is going to be an exhibition in this field in September this year, Semi-official Mehr news agency reports. Mehr also reported part of Reza Khalaj's, the director of 13th Iran Plast expo, interview. “Although the supply of presentable products and technological services to the market is our primary purpose; Iran Plast is an apt opportunity to introduce and commercialize our findings.” Khalaj added “ We hope that in this year’s expo, the capabilities and achievements of knowledge-based firms in polymer and petrochemical field are presented reasonably and in the best way possible. So, in addition to, allocating proper spaces and special researches for these participants, our objective in Iran Plast is to become a platform for connection between those companies and both foreign and domestic firms.”
Washington has adopted a maximum pressure policy towards the Islamic republic, though Tehran has decried US actions and vowed to bypass the sanctions and emphasized they would not give up on their oil and gas and petrochemical market. Tehran’s petrochemical export revenue over the last year was $11 billion. Iran is planning to double that this year.
2019, marks the 13th year that Iran Plast expo is going to be held. The event is from 22 to 25th of September and is held in the permanent fairground of Tehran. This is the biggest plastic expo in the region and it is focused on raw materials, final and semi-final items, machinery, and equipment and services.
