50th National Forum of the Chemical Industry, which will be held from 18th to 19th of October this year in Mexico City, is one of the most influential activities in the local chemical industry. This event will bring together a number of government officials, chairmen of various chemical fields, and many prestigious chemical business leaders who will give some keynote speeches on the status and prospects of the Mexican chemical industry, covering different issues like industry policy, economics, environment, energy and chemical trade in order to explore how the sustainable development strategy will work out well for the Mexican chemical industry.

This forum will be hosted by ANIQ (National Association of the Chemical Industry), the largest chemical association in Mexico. It owns a history of 60 years and represents 95% of the chemical companies in Mexico. Besides, it has 232 members and covers a wide range of chemical fields, including producers and distributors of chemical raw materials, chemical product logistics companies, chemical service companies, chemical associations in various branches, as well as strategic cooperation with some important chemical organizations of other countries.

For these reasons, the entry barrier for this professional event is extremely high -- anyone who comes to participate in the forum will have to pay an entrance fee of 8,000 RMB. However, it has attracted about 440 participants from more than 150 well-known companies in the 9 major chemical fields, about 80% of whom are key persons above the manager level. While this forum will provide them with a platform and opportunity to promote brands and create new partnerships.

OKCHEM will appear as a sponsor at this national event and also occupy one of only five booths. We will be presented to many famous companies in Mexico with the leading B2B platform image in the chemical industry as to supply professional customized services for both the buyers and the sellers in the Mexican chemical market.
