London - Many participants in the polyurethanes sector are currently preparing to attend the PU China 2010 event which is being held in Shenzhen, China, next week.
The exhibition, accompanied by company-sponsored seminars on processing of polyurethane for various end-use sectors, runs for three days 26-28 May, and space is sold out.
Such a high level of participation is an indication of how crucial the Chinese PU industry has become to the general health of the urethanes sector.
Chinese economic growth continues to outpace that of all other regions -- although the Xinhua news agency has just issued a warning that this may slow down. Xinhua writer Wang Yaguang notes that China's growth is unlikely to fall sharply this year, although it will slow, as a result of policies to steady the booming property market and perhaps some tightening of monetary policies. As the world's fastest-growing major economy, Yaguang notes that China had an 11.9-percent rise in gross domestic product in the first quarter this year.
Urethanes Technology International is keen to get further insight into the polyurethanes sector in China, and as editor of the magazine, I will be at PU China to discuss with exhibitors their views on doing business in the region, as well as finding out about other developments in their operations.
If you are going to be at PU China and would like to discuss any aspect of your activities, whether about China or not -- for example perhaps you have forthcoming expansions and investments, diversification into new markets, new products or other developments you would like to see featured in the magazine -- please contact me, Liz White, email [email protected], tel (office) +44 20 7457 1405, mobile +44 79 40 16 25 66, to arrange an interview.
I look forward to seeing you all in Shenzhen.
Liz White, editor, Urethanes Technology International.
