(C) CIA 2010 - John Saul

UK Chemical Industries’ Lessons From the Recession

April 2011. In the exclusive interview with B2Bioworld Dr John Saul, President of the British Chemical Industry Association (CIA) provides an outlook on the future of the industry sector. At issue is leveraging Pound, Dollar and Euro, while seeking opportunities within the country, in the EU, and emerging countries. Demanding tasks lie ahead. While pharma is the draught horse of UK manufacturing, how competitive is the British chemical industry on a global scale? What is the strategy to reduce dependency on fossil energies and in which ways does it account for nuclear or renewable ones after Fukushima? How are REACH regulations viewed from within the country? Last not least, what are prospects that policy makers coherently attend to industry interests given a rather fragmented scene of lobbying organisations and preferences for the finance and banking sector?
