Managing Director of National Petrochemical Company (NPC) Marziyeh Shahdaei stressed the need for integration of petrochemicals by domestic suppliers in order for them to have a firmer presence in international markets.
Addressing the 27th
gathering of the CEOs and executives of Iranian petrochemical companies on
Wednesday, Shahdaei said petrochemical suppliers need to integrate and interact
in their marketing and sale of products so that they can bolster the Iranian
brand of their goods and enjoy a firm toehold in global markets.
"We must tap every opportunity for more investment in
the sector because timely investments can add impetus to the sector's
growth," she said.
Marziyeh Shahdaei, who is also deputy petroleum minister in
petrochemical affairs, further reiterated NPC's support for domestic
manufacturers and producers, urging her audience to be more careful when buying
stuff and parts for installation in their facilities and prioritize Iranian
suppliers over their foreign rivals.
She added that once Persian Gulf Star Refinery is
operational, more feedstock will be available to many petrochemical plants in
