Dear Members and Visitors,

As the Chairman of Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA), I am privileged to be alongside board members in building this pioneering organization in the Gulf region. Since its launch in March 2006, GPCA has successfully steered the regional petrochemicals and chemicals industries towards a whole new era of co-ordination and co-operation for the collective good of the region. Indeed GPCA has come a long way in fulfilling its objectives as we have established committees to address issues of common concern, and organized workshops and seminars on various topics. We have initiated studies for our members and produced a directory to provide a platform for contact. And we successfully established the Annual GPCA Forum as one of the pivotal events in the global petrochemicals calendar.

The high level of member participation in our many events is a testament to the success of the GPCA leadership and staff – it highlights the excellent progress the association has achieved in a very short span of time. Equally important is the continuous expansion of our membership base, which is a reflection of the strong interest in the portfolio of services provided by the association in addition to the role the Arabian Gulf plays in the industry and its future. None of this would have been possible without the unwavering confidence and support rendered to us by our member companies and our stakeholders. With the support of our members, our journey towards excellence will continue with the same vigor and energy, and we are ready to meet the challenges that will come our way.

Best regards,
Abdulrahman S. Al-Fageeh
