（1） Joint CPCIF-ICCA- UN Environment Circular Economy Workshop: Closing the loop：A Journey from Plastic Waste to Value
From the beginning of its birth, plastics undertook the missio¬n of replacing ivory billiards. From the invention of natural cellulose by American printing worker Hayat in 1869 to the phenolic resin made by Beckland in 1909, and then to modern synthetic materials, ranging from food packaging to automobile, aircraft parts, plastic has become an irreplaceable material in our life. However, due to the lack of scientific management and treatment of plastic materials, we are facing an increasingly serious problem of plastic waste.
As the beginning of the plastic industry chain, how can the chemical industry contribute to the solution of the plastic waste problem? What difficulties do each link of plastic ecological chain management face at present? Will ecological design, high-value recycle or hot-debated chemical recycling technology work? Let's have a discussion in the Joint CPCIF- ICCA- UN Environment Circular Economy Workshop: Closing the loop：A Journey from Plastic Waste to Value.

Future energy utilization will present a diversified and clean development trend. The energy structure is also undergoing deep adjustment, accelerating the layout and development of the future energy is of great significance to cultivate new economic growth points, promote industrial structure upgrading, and transform the economic development mode.

（6） Plenary Session: Empowering High-Quality Development
The plenary session will follow closely on the recent trend of transform “from volume to strength” with the very focus on the high quality development. With the rapid change of global scheme, the uncertainty level has continue to update its peak value, which results in the drastic increase of external challenges along the development route of Chinese economy. At the same time, the transformation of the mode of economic development, the optimization of economic structure, and the promotion of high-quality development in China have entered a critical stage of overcoming difficulties that is particularly necessary to make arduous efforts to fight for these three major battles. In the environment of various uncertainties, how to ensure the high-quality development has become a major concern of our industry. Senior leaders of the well-known petrochemical enterprises at home and abroad will provide their own perception of high-quality development from different angles, such as Sinopec, Sinochem, Juhua Group, LG Chem, Cabot to name of few.
At the same time, Sino-US trade wars, trade disputes between Japan and South Korea, and trade frictions between the United States and Europe have all changed the global supply chain and production chain. Manufacturing enterprises in emerging economies at the low and middle end of the value chain are driven by innovation. By accumulating and seeking capabilities, they can break the international division of labour dominated by enterprises in developed countries and take a foothold in the whole world. Utilizing the current global allocation of resources and heading to the high-end development of the value chain, it allows them promote structural changes in the global competition pattern. In this context, how to reconstruct the "global value chain" has become a difficult problem for every enterprise. Minister Long Yongtu, the first person in China's WTO accession negotiations, will come out again and host a high-end interview program "Reconstructing Global Value Chain". Executives of state-owned, private and foreign enterprises will talk about the "reconstruction of global value chain" in their eyes, discuss the "fog crossing in uncertain environment" and seek the best global price, which will definitely resonate with all the business managers present here! Only those who can successfully "reconstruct the global value chain" can find the golden key to high-quality development!
