From the Committees

The 8th Asian Polyolefin Workshop will be held in Higashihiroshima City Arts & Culture Hall Kurara, Higashi-Hiroshima City, Hiroshima, Japan from December 2-6, 2019. The APO symposium was started in Nara 2005 by the expansion of the bilateral polyolefin workshop between Japan and Korea starting from 1988 in Gyeongju. Since then, APO meeting was held every two years in Asian Countries: Hangzhou (2007), Seoul (2009), Bangkok (2011), Beijing (2013), Tokyo (2015) and Tianjin (2017). This is thus the 8th symposium. The APO symposium has been organized successfully and introduced developments and research activities on polyolefin technology in Asia. The organizers believe that this workshop would donate the progress of polyolefin technology in Asia which should lead technology and economy in the 21st century.
