ASPC CEO: Annual China trade at 500$ million

Speaking at the "Iran-China Business Conference 2023", ASPC Executive Manager Mohammad-Reza Heidarzadeh announced that the ASPC exports up to 500 million dollars’ worth of products to China every year.

The Iran-China business conference - held on the sidelines of the 6th China International Import Exhibition - was attended by Iranian First Vice President Mohammad Mokhber, Minister of Industry, Mining and Trade, Abbas Aliabadi and other business and commerce officials from the two countries.

Speaking at the conference, Heidarzadeh stressed the need for companies to adapt to the competitive and technology-driven environment of international markets. “This not only guarantees their survival, but also allows them to lead and create market value”, he said. Heidarzadeh added that the petrochemical industry, having a wide range of applications  and occupying a high share of global trade, occupies a central role in the world’s high-tech industry. 

Pointing to the unique access to petrochemicals in the Middle East region, the ASPC Executive Manager said: “Iran and certain other Middle East countries have a relative advantage in the industry due to rich oil and gas resources as well as access to international waterways and proximity to Asian and European markets.”

Presenting some of the ASPC’s recent milestones, the ASPC Executive Manager said that the company has been able to produce more than 2 million tonnes of polymer and ethylene products annually. “Among the achievements of the ASPC are obtaining the highest Paya Credit Rating for 4 years in a row, gaining first place among the 837 companies in the Tehran Stock Exchange and being honored in the 2023 International Best Experience Awards in the field of organizational governance, risk management, quality management and innovation,” he said.
