Deputy oil minister remarks

IranPlast International Exhibition plays an important role in discovering export capacities and needs of the downstream industry, Iran’s Deputy Oil Minister and National Petrochemical Company (NPC) Managing Director Morteza Shahmirzaei said on Saturday.

He added the completion of value chain and the creation of added value are the key factors in the development of the petrochemical industry.

The NPC CEO said the development of technology in the downstream sector is among NPC’s policies, continuing that focusing on the transfer of technology through indigenizing and broadening domestic technical know-how is one of the principles of forming value chain.

The deputy minister described IranPlast International Exhibition as the biggest event of the country’s supplementary and midstream industries of the petrochemical sector, which can play an effective role in promoting cooperation and infrastructure, improving conditions, and removing the potential obstacles in the way of balanced development.
