At a specialized international conference "Innovations in the field of flexible packaging", which was held on June 4, 2015, the Chairman of the Board of PC UKRPLASTIC, Irina Mirochnik, initiated the necessity of creating an industry association of producers of flexible packaging in Ukraine.
This initiative was supported by the world market leader Dow Chemical Company and a number of domestic companies attended the conference.
"The urgency and just-in-time creation of the industry Association has long been about to happen," Irina Mirochnik said. "The structure, schemes and principles of the regulatory policy of the relationship of such organizations with government bodies, public organizations and the structure of internal communication have long been worked out in the European market. In this regard, nothing new needs to be invented. There is a great world experience of work of industry organizations. And that experience not only may be introduced, but must be introduced today in Ukraine by way of adapting it to the specifics and conditions of the Ukrainian market."
A specialized industry association is a powerful force whose viability and effectiveness has been proved in practice. The Ukrainian Association of Manufacturers of Flexible Packaging will promote the active development not only of individual companies, but the entire industry as a whole, which will naturally have a positive impact on the development of the domestic economy and will contribute to strengthening a positive image of our country.
