The article considers the possible decline of polyolefin imports in China from 2006 to 2007. According to a source from Sinopec, China is expected to be less reliant on polyolefins imports in 2006 and 2007 due to a sharp increase in local capacities. Speaking at the 2nd ICIS Asian Polymers Conference in Shanghai in May 2006, Chen Jiaping, deputy manager for polymers division, Sinopec Chemical Sales Branch Co., said that local production is expected to grow.
