­LAHORE: The chemical industry showcased its potential for growth and innovation at a three-day exhibition that opened on Monday in Lahore, a statement said.

The Pakistan Chemical Forum, organised by the B2B Media (Pvt.) LTD and Pakistan Chemistry Council, attracted more than 250 foreign delegates and featured products and services from various sectors, including coatings, petrochemicals, polyurethane, and laboratory solutions.

The event aimed to provide a platform for industry-academia collaboration and to enhance the exports and image of Pakistan in the global market.

Kashif Anwar, president of the Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), inaugurated the exhibition and urged the government to support the development of the chemical industry, which he said was vital for reducing the trade deficit and attracting foreign investment.
