What will Chemical companies face in 2008? With the dollar falling, the appearance of a softening US economy and growth in Asia chemical companies of all sizes need to be asking hard questions about the direction of the global economy, the industry, and their company’s strategic options.
View American Chemistry Council Chief Economist Kevin Swift for an event designed specifically with chemical industry executives in mind. Take this opportunity to gain insight into the changes to the business climate that may take place during 2008. Whether you see the credit crunch and the impending economic slowdown as a headache-in-the-making or accelerating demand in Asia as an unparalleled opportunity this web-based event will put you in the picture.
Kevin Swift will discuss how global economic growth is slowing and how this will affect companies involved in the chemicals sector: The housing downturn has adversely affected the U.S. and the ensuing credit problems and subsequent tightening have spread to other nations. A key issue is whether or not the weakness has done enough damage to tip the U.S. and other economies toward recession.
