Plastpack Africa 2008 comes at a most opportune time, as it will provide a window for investors and role-players in the plastics and rubber industries, to see firsthand the enormous potential and opportunities available in KwaZulu-Natal," said Mkhize. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
