Asian soaps meet to be held in Goa

Our Bureau

Mumbai , Jan. 26

GOA will host the first Asian Soaps, Cosmetics and Detergents conference scheduled for March 13-16.

Organised by Oil Technologists Association of India (OTAI) — Western Zone, the conference is intended to provide a platform for regional players to share knowledge and resources.

Participation of representatives from the industry in SAARC, ASEAN and North East Asian countries is expected to boost regional cooperation, organisers pointed out. They added that the technical sessions would cover commercial, environmental and regulatory issues, the marketplace and raw material scenario, and engineering technology. The strong growth in the consumption of soaps, detergents and cosmetics and the potential for further growth, given the continual rise in incomes and population in the Asian region, have made the industry vibrant.

Increasing awareness of consumers using these products provides both a challenge and an opportunity to cater to the market needs.

The changing paradigm in home care, personal care and beauty care industries in Asia will be the focus of industry attention. A buyer-seller meet has also been organised, OTAI said.
