According to a press release published by Turkey’s KOKSAN Plastics, plastics players in Turkey will meet on March 17, 2015 at a Workshop on Strategic Developments for the Future Design of the Plastics Sector, held collaboratively by the Southeastern Plastic and Chemical Industry Association (GAPLASDER), Turkish Plastics Industrialist Federation (PLASFED) and Gaziantep Chamber of Industry. The workshop will take place at Divan Gaziantep Hotel and sector players will discuss key concerns facing the Turkish plastics and petrochemical sectors in an attempt to determine some strategies designed to overcome these challenges.

Murat Kökoğlu, the head of the Southeastern Plastic and Chemical Industry Association (GAPLASDER) and CEO of Köksan A.Ş., invited plastics sector representatives to the workshop, stating that GAPLASDER is the one and only foundation that represents plastics industrialists in the region. In addition, Kökoglu said that GAPLASDER aims to represent the sector and seeks to solve problems that players face through sectoral representations, vocational training in plastics as well as EU, KOSGEB and IGEME projects and fairs.

Kökoğlu highlighted that the 2023 vision is of significant importance for Turkey’s plastics sector and further added, “The 2023 vision of the plastics sector shines in terms of high-value added applications in advanced technology sectors like aviation, telecommunication, medical and defense. In addition, we aim to reduce outsourcing with increasing recycling to increase the energy efficiencies in manufacturing processes and meet 4%, or $18 billion, of Turkey’s export target of $500 billion and 30% of the chemical sector’s export target of $50 billion,”.
