The 2013 China Petroleum and Chemical International Conference will kick off on September 25 in Xi’an, the capital city of northwest Shaanxi province.

The two-day event, jointly organized by the China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation (CPCIF) and Shaanxi provincial government, is themed “opportunities in China’s petrochemical industry under the Western Development Program.”

The conference expects over 1,000 participants.

It will showcase investment opportunities in energy-rich Shaanxi.

The inland province’s population is about 37 million. It ranks among China’s top oil-producing regions and is also known as a technology center.

More than 40 top executives have signed on — from global petrochemical firms such as PetroChina, Sinopec, Dow Corning, BASF and IHS.

The annual conference has been held the past three years in Shanghai and Tianjin.

Details of the event, in both Chinese and English, are available on the official website
