GPCA is proud to present the 3rd edition of GPCA Leaders Forum – an exclusive and strategic C-suite conference scheduled on 1 March 2023, in Muscat, Oman. Building on its past success, this exclusive, invite-only event returns this year under the theme, ‘Bracing for Change: GCC Chemicals in 2023 & Beyond’.

The chemical industry touches all areas of our lives. This includes food, construction, energy, agriculture, hygiene, mobility. Without a doubt, the chemical industry plays a pivotal role in the global economy. The economic transformation that the transition to net-zero would entail, though initially seen as a big challenge, is now a clear opportunity for the industry. It is increasingly being seen as an enabler that will help companies across industries reach their net-zero goals. At the same time, it helps the industry position itself to grow and add new value in a more sustainable manner.

This exclusive, one-day event will reflect on the shifting global financial, geopolitical, and social landscapes in which the chemical industry operates. The program will address vital topics ranging from the global macroeconomic outlook to innovation, the convergence of trade and sustainability and highlight the possible vulnerabilities and opportunities for business leaders in the year ahead.

Achieving a cleaner, healthier future will rely on an unwavering focus from all governments, working closely with businesses, investors, and citizens. It will also require greater international cooperation among countries and companies, notably to ensure that developing economies have the necessary means to reach their net-zero ambitions in time.
