Senior Vice President, Chemicals & Process Technologies, Middle East & Turkey


The key message for me is collaboration. Collaboration between governments to set the policies, collaboration between companies such as us, collaboration between academia to help develop the technology, and then focusing on what the end consumer wants. So it's that collaborative approach. No one can do it by themselves. We have to move quickly.
