This is the fifth time that the Iranian delegation came to CHINAPLAS. Among the 68 members this time, most of them have offices based in Dubai. The person-in-charge of the delegation, Dr Pasalar, says that he has very good experience with the previous four editions of the show. “Every edition is better than the last one,” he says. “Most importantly, we got better price and better deals every year! For this year, most of our members are looking for plastics machinery.”
He expects that prices for raw materials and machinery would be lower in view of the overall economic situation.There are a few visitor delegations from South Korea. One of them, from the Korean plastics and rubber recycling industry, has formed a 105-strong delegation, looking for different types of machines and raw materials. The group’s representative, Sung Hoon Lee, says that they are impressed with the scale of the show and the wide variety of exhibits.

“In addition, we also want to know more about the new materials industry, including the production and processing enterprises, trade groups and foreign enterprises in China, and so on. We look forward to developing towards integration.
