The theme of the forum is “LPG Week: “Energizing Tomorrow,” and the forum which will attract over 2,000 delegates from 72 countries, will hold at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The forum will create opportunities for global stakeholders to engage with the activities lined up, including a global exhibition, technology conference, the LPG Development Summit, among others.
Akande said, “World leaders, top government ministers from several countries and Chief Executives of major multinational corporations in the Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) sectors around the globe would be attending the week-long 2021 World LPG Week from Sunday through Thursday this week under the auspices of the Paris-based World LPG Association.”
