The article discusses Asia's prospects of sustaining the high price levels of olefins. Asian spot olefin prices saw their highest price levels in September 2006, hitting $1,500/tonne against market expectations and driving up Asia's chemical prices. With the second Asian Olefins Conference in 2007, the question being asked, is whether Taiwan and Korea will become the next exporters to leave Asia's giant China as the largest olefins importer in the region.
