A delegation led by Qatar Chemical and Petrochemical Marketing and Distribution Company (Muntajat) joined industry players at The 5th Annual Gulf Petrochemical and Chemical Association (GPCA) Fertilizer Convention to represent the State of Qatar’s growing downstream industry.
The GPCA Fertilizer Convention, now in its fifth year, was held in Dubai from the 16th to the 18th of September. The Muntajat delegation participated in discussions of emerging trends in the petrochemical industry with a focus on the role of fertilisers in food security. Exhibiting for the first time at the convention, Muntajat showcased Qatar’s portfolio of fertiliser products that includes Urea, Ammonia, Aqueous Ammonia and Urea Formaldehyde Concentrate (UFC).In addition, the company strengthened its presence at the event by taking on sponsorship opportunities and partaking in various awareness activities.
Commenting on the company’s participation, Mr. Abdulrahman Ali Al-Abdulla, the Chief Executive Officer of Muntajat, said: “The GPCA Fertilizer Convention presented us with the ideal platform to discuss the issue of food security and the rise in fertiliser demand. Our participation at this year’s event reinforced Qatar’s position in the chemical and petrochemical industry and highlighted the value proposition of Qatar’s downstream products to global food production.”
“The demand for fertiliser products is on the rise every day. As per the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the world’s population has increased near fourfold in the past 100 years. Muntajat understands the key role that our fertiliser products play in food security and we are well positioned to capitalise on opportunities to meet the growing demand of developing countries that strive to increase their food production capacity,” added Mr. Al-Abdulla.
