and collaboration in the field of modern technologies, especially in downstream
petrochemical industries, Alimorad noted, "The growth of non-oil exports
and the identification of new markets for petrochemical products can result in

on value chain development, support for domestic production, and boosting
domestic manufacturing, commenced on September 17 and will run for four days at
the permanent exhibition grounds in Tehran.
Iran Plast serves as a platform for promoting collaboration

commitment to enhancing its position in the global market while contributing to
the growth of its domestic manufacturing capabilities.
