The show will be held in Shanghai from 23-26 April 2014. Borouge is inviting the plastics industry to visit them at Hall N2, Booth F01, to learn more about how Borouge can help its business partners increase their competitiveness and contribute to the Company’s vision of Shaping the Future with Plastics.
