Int'l Plastics News for Asia
- ASEANPLAS returns to Singapore this month. A major event for the S.E. Asian plastics industry, this international trade fair promises visitors a host of new technologies and solutions from 200 exhibitors. Touted as the region抯 largest and most dedicated platform for the plastics and rubber industries, the show is a must-see given the product range and additional attractions. Indeed, S.E.Asian trade shows are getting bigger and better, and this reflects the continued confidence on the region抯 fastgrowing industries. We take a look at Thailand in this issue. The country is the venue of another important trade show, the InterPlas Thailand 2008. Political issues failed to dampen business confidence as its industries continue to move ahead. The current focus on core industries, which include plastics manufacturing, underscores the Thai government抯 emphasis on pushing economic growth. This issue抯 Boardroom Connection features a company in Singapore. In such a highly competitive environment, the name of the game goes beyond production capacity. A winning formula combines persistent monitoring of developments in the use of advanced technologies and new applications as well as following market preference, which often requires entering into a new venture. Innovative applications in automotive manufacturing have yielded cost-efficiency, durability, and quality while resolving some inherent production concerns. As one press release on Interplas says, 搘ho knows how many plastic parts in a car? More than a thousand parts!?it becomes imperative for automobile parts manufacturers to respond to stricter standards through continuous research, testing and improvement in their production.
