ABSTRACT
The article discusses the highlights of the Asian Petrochemical Industry Conference (APIC) held in Taipei, Taiwan. Several keynote addresses touched on the need for Japanese and other high-cost Asian producers to move further down the value chain. The author says hardly anybody in the conference seemed to recognize the scale of risks faced by companies that are once again ploughing into huge investments.
