Riyadh:With their strong potential to make significant contributions to enhancing the Kingdom's attractiveness and competitiveness on the global economic landscape, the latest editions of “Saudi Plastics and Petrochem Exhibition 2020” and “Saudi Print and Pack Exhibition 2020” (Saudi PPPP) are set to review the Kingdom’s economic diversification plans and the promising investment opportunities they present. In addition, the 17th edition of exhibitions will highlight governmental efforts that aim to enhance the attractiveness and competitiveness of these vital sectors and their important roles in the Kingdom’s economic diversification efforts. Both exhibitions will be held from January 13-16, 2020, under the patronage of H.E. Bandar bin Ibrahim bin Abdullah Al khorayef, Minister of Industry and Mineral Resources.
Organized by Riyadh Exhibition Company at Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Center, the Saudi Plastics and Petrochem Exhibition 2020 and the Saudi Print and Pack 2020 have evolved to become the most prominent specialized exhibitions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The latest editions of the exhibitions will highlight the most recent technological innovations within the plastics, petrochemical, printing and packaging industries that continue to remain major drivers of economic growth and diversification in the country.
Saudi Plastics and Petrochem Exhibition 2020 and the Saudi Print and Pack 2020 are set to bring together the largest number of decision makers, experts, manufacturers, and local and regional and international suppliers under one roof to explore the prospects for joint cooperation and discuss new partnerships, in order to capitalize on the tremendous opportunities that exist within the local petrochemical and plastic sectors. This is particularly relevant as the Saudi government, led by
Saudi Vision 2030, continues to move forward with the diversification of the national economy to become one of the 20 largest economies in the world. Against this backdrop, the upcoming Saudi PPPP is poised to attract remarkable international attention, thanks to the participation of 424 exhibitors from 26 countries, spread across eight international pavilions, reflecting the high confidence and prestigious reputation it enjoys on the world stage.
This year, the exhibition’s agenda includes two conferences, the Saudi Conference for Plastic and Petrochem, which will be held on January 14, and the Saudi Conference for Printing and Packaging, which will be held on January 15 and 16. The Conferences will feature significant participation from government and private sector representatives and experts, who will gather to promote constructive dialogue, facilitate knowledge sharing, and exchange successful experiences, in order to position the Kingdom at the forefront of the world's economies.
Mohammad Al Al-Sheikh, Head of Marketing, Riyadh Exhibition Company Ltd, said: "The exhibition continues to consolidate its position as an important strategic platform to strengthen cooperation frameworks between the leaders of the petrochemical and plastic industries and packaging within the Kingdom and globally as well.
It aims to capitalize on emerging opportunities and the most promising prospects that are available in the Kingdom, with an aim to drive the pace of development and diversification of the national economy, in light of the continuous government support to achieve the goals of the National Transformation Program 2020 and the Saudi Vision 2030.”
Building on the success of the previous editions of the exhibition, which underscored its importance as a main pillar in enabling Saudi companies to establish a base for petrochemical and manufacturing industries, the 2020 edition of the exhibition will support the national efforts to raise the contributions of the petrochemical sector from USD 133.33 billion to USD 453.3 billion by 2030. This will further contribute to increasing non-oil exports to reach USD 666.66 billion by the same year.
