The article reports that Brazil's major petrochemical complexes are integrating towards a more globally competitive model. On August 3, 2007, state-controlled oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA moved to buy Suzano Petroquimica, saying it was one step closer to the consolidation of Brazil's petrochemical industry in the southeast. Most petrochemical analysts say this step is vital for Brazil's petrochemical parks. Petrobras is the only supplier of naphtha in Brazil.
