Annual GPCA Forum special episode: The future of trade

Episode 30
17 min / Published

In a special interview for the GPCA Podcast, Mutlaq H. Al-Morished, CEO, Tasnee and Chairman, GPCA International Trade Committee, speaks to Sara Soleja, GPCA Youth Council Sub-Committee Chair, and Project Engineer, Saudi Aramco, on the sidelines of the 17th Annual GPCA Forum, about the trade landscape for chemical producers in the region. 

“As a GCC block, we need to form bilateral agreements with major trading partners, such as the EU, Asia, and America. We also need tax treaties with other countries. Today we have very few tax treaties. Such agreements will make our industry more competitive,” he tells the GPCA podcast host. 

As part of the interview, he also goes on to discuss: 

  • The GCC’s role as a valuable trading partner in the global chemical industry
  • The opportunities ahead to expand the region’s exports of chemicals and petrochemicals
  • What regulations are required to enable the region’s trade growth
  • The role of chemical industry in the modernization of the WTO
  • What particular changes he’d like to see in the future
  • Plans and priorities for the GPCA International Trade Committee in 2024
