Plastic and rubber: the path to sustainability and digital environmental solutions

Thailand's 3-day Plastic & Rubber Exhibition 2023, which ended Sunday, was hailed as a success with a focus on sustainable plastics, rubber and the latest digital green solutions.

The exhibition's theme, "Growing towards sustainability," aims to motivate Thai enterprises to move forward in line with the global sustainability trend, said Sanchai Numbunnam, general manager of exhibition organizer Informa Markets Thailand.

Informa Markets is a leading global event and trade show organizer. Thai-made plastics and rubber are important in the global market, Sanchai said. Thailand is one of the leading producers and exporters of plastics and rubber, and its main export markets are China, Japan, India and ASEAN, he noted.

Thailand is also a manufacturing base for plastic and rubber products. These products are sold domestically and exported all over the world, with the United States, Japan and ASEAN being the top three export markets.

In this regard, it is essential for the country's industries to adapt to global standards of green and cleaner production in order to increase their competitiveness and maintain a leading position in the global market, Sanchai said. "Thailand must strengthen its ability to meet global demand by responding to current trends," he said.
