GPCA is the sole regional trade association serving all of its members with a variety of data, technical assistance and resources, required by the petrochemicals and chemicals industry in the Gulf region. GPCA is led by a Board of Directors, composed of 15 CEOs of regional companies involved in the production of petrochemicals and chemicals in the Gulf and chaired by Eng. Mohammed Al-Mady, Vice Chairman and CEO of SABIC.

We have become a well-recognized association worldwide in providing a senior class networking platform for the petrochemicals and chemicals industry. We are also striving to become a well-known “Think Tank” and also as the regional spokesperson on behalf of the industry.

we are aiming to contribute to this initiative though increasing the awareness of Chemistry among the young specifically in this region (gulf and middle east) and showcase the socio-economic benefits the chemical industry had created to the regional economies so far
