Welcome letter from Natig Aliyev,Minister for Industry and Energy of the Republic of Azerbaijan
Dear Exhibition Participants and Visitors!
I convey to you the sincere greetings of the Ministry of Industry and Energy of Azerbaijan Republic on the occasion of the opening of the 1st Caspian International Plastics and Rubber Exhibition Plastex 2011.
The successful economic development policy implemented by HE Mr Ilham Aliyev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, has created favourable conditions for the development of non-oil sectors, including the petrochemical industry. The long-established and extensive experience, the solid basis of scientific production and scientific and academic resources, the rich raw material reserves, the environment conducive to investment and, more generally, the great potential of the country are all in support of the development of this sector.
Taking into consideration the above-mentioned, I believe that hosting the 1st Caspian International Plastics and Rubber Exhibition is an important step in the development of this sector.
The new technology and equipment presented at the exhibition are important in terms of giving renewed impetus to the development of the plastic sector, which is directly associated with our national petrochemical industry. This exhibition will serve as an effective platform for local and foreign businessmen, experts and investors, and will also clear the way for the exchange of ideas, technology and experience in this sector, as well as serving as a great forum for the introduction of the latest technology, which is one of the strategic areas of development for our country.
I wish every success to the participants, organisers and visitors of the exhibition and hope that this exhibition will become an annual event.
Minister for Industry and Energy of the Republic of Azerbaijan
