Into its 5th edition, M-PLAS 2011 is the ideal gateway to Malaysia's dynamic plastics and rubber industries. Bringing together more than 200 exhibitors from  20  countries  including  national  pavilions  and  groups  from  Austria, China,  Italy,  Malaysia  and  Singapore,  this  four-day  exhibition, scheduled from 9-12 November 2011 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre,  provides exhibitors and visitors alike with  an  international platform  to  discover  the  latest  market  trends, developments and innovations in plastics and rubber. As the leading flagship plastics and rubber trade fair in Malaysia, M-PLAS 2011 is a key business conduit for industry professionals to network, engage and explore business opportunities with key international suppliers.

M-PLAS 2011 is organised by Messe Düsseldorf Asia. This world-class exhibition is endorsed by Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE) and supported by the Malaysian Plastics Manufacturers Association (MPMA), Malaysian Rubber Products Manufacturers' Association (MRPMA), Malaysian Rubber Export Promotion Council (MREPC), and Messe Düsseldorf, organizer of K, International Trade Fair for Plastics + Rubber Worldwide. Noteworthy is that some 25,000 visitors have visited M-PLAS since its debut in the year 2000. These visitors have benefitted from the wide array of cutting-edge machineries, global technologies and processing solutions on display.  The exhibition brings together a multitude of new and innovative technologies, solutions, products and services – many of which will be launched in the region for the first time following their presentation at the recent K fair in Düsseldorf, Germany. The exhibition will continue to attract trade visitors, buyers and professionals who will not only gain from M-PLAS' state-of-the-art showcase on plastics and rubber but also be able to explore opportunities for better business. Alongside the exhibition, M-PLAS 2011 will also present a series of seminars and presentations on various topics relevant to your business. 

National initiatives spur industry growth 

M-PLAS returns to Kuala Lumpur at a time when the Malaysian economy, industrial sectors and business environment are performing strongly. Malaysia's GDP growth is expected to average 5% a year in 2011 to 2015. Home to more than 1,550 plastic product manufacturers, Malaysia is one of the most diversified and advanced plastics and rubber processing sectors among the ASEAN nations. On the account of high level technology and superior production cost efficiencies employed, the plastics and rubber processing sectors are re-establishing themselves as a strong competitive manufacturing base. These sectors will continue to move up the value added ladder even further and take advantage of a new, eager customer base in the rapidly expanding ASEAN region. Twelve industries have been earmarked for development under Malaysia's Third Industrial Master Plan (IMP3) running through to 2020. These include electrical and electronics, medical devices, and transport equipment in the non-resource-based sector and petrochemicals, rubber, and food processing in the resource-based sector. These target industries are intrinsically linked with the plastics and rubber processing industries, and the Government's emphasis on building them augurs well for future demand for advanced processing tools and solutions. The Government's target is to achieve 5.6% average annual growth in the manufacturing sector and a 28.5% contribution to GDP in 2020. This will entail total investments in the manufacturing sector of RM27.5 billion annually. Strategic thrusts that will boost iAir Jordan XI 11 High
