Chemicals are integral to the modern way of life in the 21st century where consumers buy thousands of chemical products every single day ranging from household detergents to automotive paints; from fertilizers to crop saving pesticides and from pain relieving medicines like Disprin to life saving drugs and vaccines. Pakistan is blessed with a diverse and vibrant chemical industry having the potential to become a regional/global player. PCMA is facilitating its members by providing latest information on the developments in chemical industry world-over besides introducing best practices through regularly organized events e.g. seminars, workshops, trainings, exposure visits etc. We are keeping regular liaison with government ministries, regulatory bodies, international agencies, fora etc. Our work with government focuses on imports substitution efforts. Discussion on establishing first ever naphtha cracker complex in Pakistan is also, that would be a potent source for producing raw-material and inputs used for chemical manufacturing domestically and thereby substituting the imports.
