Financial Tribune – The domestic petrochemical industry is well placed in the global market and plans to expand, said the director of planning and development at the state-run National Petrochemical Company.

Speaking on the sidelines of the 12th International Iran Plast Exhibition in Tehran, Farnaz Alavi said “Iran’s petrochemical sector has a good presence in international markets and we have been able to sell in Asia and Europe,” NIPNA , the National Petrochemical Company’s news agency, quoted her as saying.
