The Arabian Gulf chemical industry trades with more than 100 countries worldwide, and has a 4.3% share in global chemical exports. Chemical trade contributes significantly to regional socio-economic benefits and supports the industry’s growth and competitive position. Despite trade restrictive measures around the world, GCC chemical exports significantly grew over the past years driven by increased production and the ability to secure supply to key export markets. GPCA actively promotes the adoption of free market policies and for the elimination of tariff and non-tariff barriers that impact chemicals trade negatively. In coordination with the GPCA International Trade Committee we strongly advocate the upholding of multilateral trade agreements under the World Trade Organization.
