Macroeconomic factors, such as a volatile economic environment and increasing pressure on European margins due to the rise of Shale Gas in North America and large outputs from emerging markets, force supply chain managers to standardise processes and to deliver improved supply chain best practices and modelling systems.
Mark Nikolich , the CEO Europe for Braskem, who is speaking at LogiChem states that these challenges can be turned into opportunities for growth. In his opinion, the chemical market can take advantage of volatility in the current climate by investing in people and specific projects, achieving improved synergies in multiple regions, and by understanding the risks and capitalising on the opportunities in current global production and demand trends.
He is the first-ever CEO speaker at LogiChem (http://www.wbresearch.com/
