It is against the backdrop of massive investments into the North-African plastics and packaging industry and a huge increase in demand for plastics and chemical products, that the Moroccan Plastics Association FMP in cooperation with Forum 7 and fairtrade organise plast expo 2013. The 5th International Plastics, Rubber, Composites, Packaging and Conditioning Trade Fair for Morocco and North Africa takes place at the Casablanca International Fairgrounds on 19 - 22 June 2013.
