18 February 2018

Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (GPIC) President and member of the Arab Fertiliser Union (AFA) Board of Directors Dr. Abdulrahman Jawahery attended its regular Board meeting on the sidelines of the 24th Fertilizer Forum in the Egyptian capital, Cairo. Discussions during the meeting focussed on adopting a Plan of Action for the year and taking measures to implement it.

The Board also discussed working Committees’ reports and took stock of what had been implemented while discussing future implementation of projects.

In his comments, Dr. Jawahery said he was satisfied at the outcome and the positive results which, he said, would enhance performance and continue the Board of Directors’ momentum. He said it would also support production and manufacturing companies while preserving the top quality of their products. He spoke of the Board’s keenness to attend the meeting and said it showed their commitment to move forward on the path of development at the regional and international level.

Dr. Jawahery stressed on GPIC’s continued support of AFA activities and said the Company had representatives in all of its Committees, including those on the Technical and Economic Committee and the Committee on Safety, Health and the Environment. He said the Committees work to raise awareness among member companies and others involved in the vital industry.

The AFA seeks to coordinate and develop trade, administrative and technical relations in the field of fertiliser industry as well as the use of fertilizers, while not concentrating on business development of profits. It assists members in addressing production problems by exchanging information and experiences and helps them overcome difficulties in securing raw material at reasonable prices. It also helps in exchanging the latest information, data, technical and economic statistics of Arab and international chemical fertiliser manufacturers, while taking stock of developments and fluctuations in the international market.
