QDB participates in 7th edition of Plast Expo in Casablanca

In its ongoing drive to open new regional and international markets for Qatari exports, Qatar Development Bank (QDB) participated in the 7th edition of the Plast Expo - International Exhibition for Plastics, held this year in Casablanca, Morocco.


Through the support of its export program, ‘Tasdeer’, QDB showcased 14 Qatari SMEs involved in plastics manufacturing and packaging at the nation’s designated marquee. Tasdeer executive director Hassan Khalifa Al Mansoori said: “Our participation at this year’s fair allows us to further strengthen the presence of Qatari companies operating in the plastics and packaging sector in the regional MENA market.”

He added: “We must remember that many regional markets are undergoing an unprecedented phase of development, and thus, are eager recipients of high-quality, competitively-priced imports. This trend enables Qatari SMEs to compete and acquire a good share of these markets.”

Strategic platform

Plast Expo 2017 attracted the world’s leading decision makers in the plastics industry from both the public and private sectors. It also provided a strategic platform and a networking opportunity to manufacturers, allowing for discourse on the industry’s best practises as well as common challenges.

Notably, the visitors also saw exhibitors showcase their latest patented technologies and machinery used in the manufacturing of plastics and petrochemicals.
