ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of China's economic growth to the chemical industry. What is of more concern is that new capacities are being added, justified almost entirely on Taiwanese and South Korean proximity to China, which results in substantial freight cost and shipment-time advantages over the Middle East. Another problem is that if China tanks, the Indonesian, Vietnamese and Malaysian economies will also suffer.
