ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Economic Development Board (EDB) of Singapore is studying the construction of a methanol-to-olefins complex. According to EDB executive director Julian Ho, Jurong Island is the ideal location for the complex because it is where the country's existing chemicals hub is based. He also adds that chemical companies would prefer Singapore over other places because the country has a good reputation for protecting intellectual rights.
