Bob Masterson, CIAC President and CEO, will speak at PetroChem Canada 2017 in Sarnia, Ontario on September 27th to discuss Canada’s petrochemical opportunities and point out the factors that lead to the development of a chemistry investment cluster in North America – particularly Canada.
Based on historical patterns, Canada is not attracting its fair share of the $350 billion of new investments in the North American chemistry sector. Canada, however, is making it to the short investment list due to its market access and feedstock, the improved depreciation rate for business investments in manufacturing and processing machinery and equipment, and lower corporate tax rates. Despite this, the winning conditions are not present. Masterson’s session will discuss what it will take to establish the winning conditions in Canada to incentivize investment.
PetroChem Canada 2017 will bring together the brightest minds in the industry and provide insights into how Canada can position itself to be a competitive player on the global petrochemical stage. The conference will focus on understanding the global petrochemical industry outlook and how to maximize Canada’s role, providing a big picture outlook before going in depth into specific national and regional opportunities and challenges.
Discussions will centre around attracting global capital investment, current incentives to build, project updates, regulations, the need for government policies to support diversification in the market and the future state of the industry.
Attend Canada’s leading petrochemical event to learn how you can best promote investment and growth in the Canadian petrochemical industry, creating long term stable jobs and diversify Canada’s energy sector.
