Such support will include the provision of statistics, research and reports; cooperating with similar organizations around the world; and with the technical and economic Arab bodies to fully integrate the region’s paper, printing and packaging industries.”
“MEPCO is pleased to sign this MoU with the Federation’s leadership, and I would like to thank them for helping companies working in this industry over the years.
