EDITOR’S NOTE

P

lastics and Rubber Asia (PRA) magazine has become a stalwart in the plastics and rubber industry. Published since 1985, our print magazine published eight (8) times a year boasts of a circulation of 110,000 copies a year plus bonus distribution in key international industry events. Supplemented by online niche periodicals Rubber Journal Asia or RJA (www.rubberjournal.com) and Injection Moulding Asia or IMA (www.injectionmouldingasia.com), PRA has increased its online penetration and targeted viewership. PRA is attuned to the shifts in global economic eminence, emerging new markets, and new mergers and acquisitions. This year we have witnessed industries being revitalised across the board. These developments signal positive breakthroughs for players in the plastics and rubber industry. Through it all, PRA has played a major role in this game-changing cycle. For news followers, PRA is a premier information platform. For advertisers, PRA is a wide-reaching channel for potential business leads, prospecting agents and distributors, and clients who may require products and services. As the year closes, we are antcipating brighter prospects for the industry. We hope that this yearender compilation of some of the best feature articles we have published in the magazine in 2016 serve as evidence of ongoing progress for the plastics and rubber industries across the globe.
