Alba showcases key products at Dubai expo
Manama, April 30, 2013
Alba's participation in Aluminium Middle East 2013 in Dubai underscores the company's ongoing commitment to support initiatives that strengthen the region's growing status as a global hub for aluminium production.
Aluminium Middle East - formerly known as Aluminium Dubai - is held every two years and brings together regional and global players in the aluminium industry on a single platform.
This year the event - widely regarded as one of the Middle East's leading exhibitions for aluminium products, technologies and investment - was held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The Alba stand at the exhibition venue provided the company with a platform to showcase its portfolio of high-grade aluminium products, network with current and potential trade partners, and interact with industry peers to examine opportunities and challenges facing the industry.
"As a regional pioneer owing to its status as the Middle East's first-ever aluminium smelter, Alba remains firmly committed to support any initiative that strengthens the region's status as a growing hub for aluminium production," said Alba acting chief finance and supply officer Ali Al Basqali.
"We are proud that in a space of just 40 years, the region is now in a position to corner 15 per cent of global production.
"Events such as Aluminium Middle East 2013 further underline the region's status as a serious player in the industry and, at the same time, provide opportunity for engaging in negotiations with current and potential trade partners," he added.
Aluminium Middle East 2013 was the third edition of the hugely successful trade event, and witnessed participation from over 165 exhibitors from 28 countries, and with more than 3,000 individuals attending the event.-TradeArabia News Service
