Dubai, February 3, 2013
Al Khaleej Sugar, the largest stand-alone sugar refinery in the world, is participating at the ongoing Kingsman Dubai 9th Sugar Conference in Dubai, one of the largest events in the sugar trading industry.
The event, which opened today (February 3) in grand Hyatt Dubai, will welcome over 600 delegates including refiners, producers, shipping companies, investment bankers and traders from over 45 countries, and will continue until February 5.
Jamal Al Ghurair, managing director of Al Khaleej Sugar Refinery, said: “The Dubai Sugar Conference is an excellent hub to network with shareholders and to meet with our peers in the sugar industry.”
“It’s the ideal stage to discuss important issues like the anticipated global sugar consumption growth in 2013, which is proposed to be an approximately 2 to 2.5 per cent increase, as well as to talk about our own expansions and additions to the refinery.”
The day commenced with a welcome address from Al Ghurair as well as an address from Kingsman Director, Jonathan Kingsman, and then broken down into sessions consisting of market updates, panel discussions, and speeches.
“The conference is a great place for speakers and attendees to meet and discuss past, present, and future developments and happenings in the sugar industry, such as the 16 per cent sugar price decline in 2012,” said Kingsman.
“We have been bringing together a huge international group of people here in Dubai for nine years, and the conference has become one of the biggest stages for sugar market discussion in the world.” – TradeArabia News Service
