Managing Director of National Petrochemical Company (NPC) Marziyeh Shahdaei said Iranian manufacturers and builders contribute by 70% to the petrochemical industry's machinery and equipment supply.
Addressing the opening ceremony of the 13th Oil Industry
Show in Assalouyeh, south of Iran, Shahdaei said petrochemical plants can be
fully designed and constructed in Iran without any foreign assistance.
She said the quality goods supplied by Japanese and Korean
companies were once as bad as those produced in China but they could reach
their current level because they relied on their domestic potentialities.
Marziyeh Shahdaei, who is also deputy petroleum minister in
petrochemical affairs, stressed the need for promotion of the quality of items
produced domestically, saying that it is up to the manufacturers to access the
latest technical savvy in order to emulate the success of their foreign rivals.
