Dear Friends,
Compliments of the season !!

I take this opportunity to share some interesting developments and new initiatives adopted by Plastindia Foundation. These, I am sure will charter good tidings and bring more positive development to Indian Plastics Industry and give Plastindia Foundation more opportunities to bring you “progress through plastics”.

Plastindia Foundation is extremely proud to announce that the 11th edition of PLASTINDIA 2021 International Exhibition and Conference, will be helmed by National Executive Council Chairman, Mr. Ajay Shah. He is the Sector Head - Polymer & Cracker at Reliance Industries Limited. His appointment will help the exhibition offer more value and empower our exhibitors and visitors to do better business at PLASTINDIA 2021. Also, it is my privilege to announce that Mr. Ashok Goel- Chairman and Managing Director, Essel Propack Limited has accepted to lead the National Advisory Board as Chairman, for Plastindia 2021. His experience, foresight, in-depth knowledge, and his previous role at PIF as President (2009-12) will further enable Plastindia to charter new heights and achieve more success in this edition.

With a focus on building a larger and bigger impact of plastics image in the country, the Environment and Plastics Image Committee will be chaired by one of the true champions and promoter of plastics and its use for the benefit of mankind, Mr. S . B. Dangayach, Ex - Managing Director, Sintex Industries Limited. He has unparalleled depth and knowledge of the Industry, Environment and Issues related to the Plastic Industry. Under his able leadership, the committee will work on a national level with a broader perspective on tackling environmental issues with a sharp focus on mass awareness, education and building an understanding on how, with effective waste management efforts, we can bring about a change and help protect our environment.

As the Indian Plastics Industry surges into another fiscal year, it is pertinent that we understand the growth sectors and focus on helping emerging markets consolidate and become stronger through a unified effort of knowledge-share and empowerment. The Indian Plastics Processing Industry has been one of the most promising industry with high growth potential, However it has been observed that, a majority of these processors are MSME’s fragmented across India.

The need of the hour is to bring the members of various regional plastic associations together to create a common platform for the processing industry to lobby and represent and raise issues that concern the industry- be it trade, taxes or regulatory issues. Creation of an All India Co-ordination Committee, initiated by Plastindia Foundation under the able leadership of Mr. Alok Tibrewala – Chairman, All India Plastics Industry Association will immensely benefit the Processing Industry and will allow strong representation to the government and other regulatory bodies.

It is exciting times ahead for Plastindia Foundation, and with the support of this energetic and influential team I am sure that we will be able to bring about significant growth and positive changes in the Indian Plastics Industry yet again.

I welcome your suggestions and urge you all to contribute with your feedback on how together we can raise the bar and make Indian Plastics the flagship industry of India.

Warm regards,

Jigish N. Doshi President
