Speaking at the conference, Vijay Sankar, President, Indian Chemical Council, said “The use of chemicals in our modern life is indispensable, now more than ever, with most modern industries being deeply dependent on the chemical industry, ranging from soaps to automobiles. It is one of the most diversified industries, and India has observed high growth in the past decade while holding substantial potential for future growth as well.”

“Sustainability and Safety is a key focus ICC has been advocating though its Nicer Globe and Responsible Care initiatives. It is now imperative to create a new ecosystem for the Indian Chemical Industry moving closer to customer needs with collaboration and convergence as the new mantra of growth,” added Sankar.
