Like many other western world people working in the chemicalsector, I have witnessed the miraculous growth of China in recentdecades. I often recall the time I worked in Hong Kong, a sort ofwindow overlooking a yet unknown world, which even then, it wasthe ‘80s and ‘90s, showed signs of a development that would havesoon surprised the whole world. A very rapid development thatcontinues to surprise for the size of the phenomenon. It’s not just amatter of how big China’s chemical sector growth is, it’s also aboutgrowing quality and organisation.
