TEHRAN - Iran’s Amir Kabir Petro­chem­i­cal Com­pany (AKPC) plans to ex­port polyethy­lene to south­east Asia, par­tic­u­larly to Viet­nam, Tas­nim news agency re­ported.

AKPC aims to ex­port 5,000-8,000 mt/month of polyethy­lene in 2018 with Viet­nam as its main tar­get mar­ket, Sales and Mar­ket­ing Man­ager of AKPC Daiko Ab­basi said.

“Our strat­egy is to bring large vol­umes of polyethy­lene di­rectly from Iran to Viet­namese traders, dis­trib­u­tors and end-users, with­out go­ing through in­ter­me­di­aries,” he said.
