About this presentation

The chemical supply chain is a diverse, dynamic, and exciting sector, and its importance extends far beyond manufacturing alone. It permeates every aspect of life as we know it, it is essential to our society and our economy, and it directly and indirectly impacts billions of people.

However, in the last few years it has arguably seen the greatest challenges in a generation with events such as Brexit and a global pandemic.

Today, we continue to face ongoing and developing situations of great concern that affect us all; War in Ukraine, conflict in the Middle East and growing geopolitical tensions. Through these testing times – and indeed since being founded over 100 years ago – the Chemical Business Association has remained a steadfast, reliable, and a constant voice of reason.

Join Tim Doggett, Chief Executive Officer of the Chemical Business Association (CBA), a multi award winning Trade Association representing the UK’s chemical supply chain for a sector intelligence summary, where he will consider the opportunities – and the threats – that the future might hold.
