QAFCO at GPCA 2016 

Dubai: QAFCO participated in the 7th Annual Gulf Petrochemical Association (GPCA) fertiliser convention held in Dubai, from 6th to 8th September 2016. This year the conference focused on the theme – “Steering the fertilizer industry through challenging times’. The 7th GPCA Fertilizer Convention has been designed to provide the global and regional fertilizer industry with the most current industry information and to address the challenges and growth opportunities that are present in the market.

The fertilizer industry is changing. With energy, feedstock and product prices at low levels, production economics of all fertilizer products has shifted. Environmental concerns and increasing crop yields in different parts of the world have caused demand growth for fertilizers to slow while in other regions new potential market opportunities arise.

During the two-day event, a variety of different high-level industry executives presented their views on the market and discussed various potential opportunities in the market. Each year, the conference attracts scores of delegates, from leading producers, buyers, distributors and service providers to government agencies and academia – making it one of the most popular fertilizer event in the Middle East for networking and doing business.
