In his presentation, CC Cheah, President, Malaysian Plastics Manufacturers Association, addressed the market trends and challenges facing the local industry. He believes that technological improvements and eco-friendly solutions are the main drivers for sustainable growth.

During the second part of the summit, Thorsten Kühmann, Secretary General of EUROMAP and Managing Director of VDMA Plastics and Rubber Machinery, enlightened the participants about the winds of change in European plastics technology. In his view, in addition to the current weakness in demand, the focus would be on challenges with regard to the openness of the markets, the tough requirements for sustainability, high energy prices and the worldwide shortages of skilled junior staff.

Matt Seaholm, CEO and Dr. Perc Pineda, Chief Economist, from Plastics Industry Association, provided up-to-date synopsis of the latest economic trends and plastics production data in the US, and covered the market trends and the global outlook for the industry.
