Sohar Aluminium, organisers of the 21st Arab International Aluminium Conference & Exhibition (ARABAL) has announced full details of the agenda for the event. The event will feature a distinguished and high-powered cadre of international industry leaders who will make up the keynote panel, informing and inspiring ARABAL 2017 attendees with their expert industry insights. The organisers have indicated that the ARABAL 2017 Call for Papers will close on June 30 and urge interested parties to submit their abstracts for consideration.
ARABAL 2017 is scheduled to be held in Muscat, Oman on November 6-9, 2017. Organised under the theme ‘Driving Strategic Growth across the Global Aluminium Industry’, participants are expected to discuss topics such as market challenges of the current global economic situation, prospects in supply and demand, and sustainable resources.
“As Oman launches its ninth five-year plan and the transformational impact of the Sultanate’s long-standing drive for diversification boosts economic development and international competitiveness, we want to build on the success of Omani non-oil exports in 2016 that reached $6.2 billion,” noted Said Mohammed al Masoudi CEO of Sohar Aluminium.
“This economic evolution is underpinned by a pro-business government outlook, investor friendly legal framework, world-class infrastructure, a skilled and multi-lingual talent pool, and access to the booming markets of Asia and Africa. In short, this creates a particularly dynamic context for ARABAL 2017 and we are excited by its potential to stimulate further growth in our industry.”
