Commenting on the company’s participation in the region-specific conference, Yazeed Al-Angari, Vice President, Business, SABIC AN, said, “Our goal is to build on our strengths in the Asia Pacific market as part of our efforts to become a truly global player in the fertilizer industry. While our aspirations are to reach markets across all regions, we remain fully focused on being a company with a strong local understanding. We are fully committed to contributing toward achieving food security and promoting sustainable agriculture by developing environment-friendly agri-nutrient products that help in preserving water and improving yield.”
Al-Angari, who joined prominent leaders from the fertilizer industry at the conference, tapped the opportunity to highlight how SABIC AN is focusing on producing the next generation of more environmentally conscious and economically sustaining fertilizers. While engaging with customers, he underlined the company’s strategy to include blending and distribution of agri-nutrients in the global markets and move closer to farmers and end customers.
