Professionalization, Refinement, Specialization and Innovation (PRSI): Recognizing the shining stars in plastics & rubber industries

Facilitating small and medium-d enterprises’ (SME) innovations and development and supporting the initiatives of the Government of the People's Republic of China in strengthening the cultivation of SME towards “PRSI”, the first “PRSI – Shining Stars in Plastics & Rubber Industries” will be held on the first day of the show (Apr 17). This event will not only act as a platform for PRSI enterprises to explore business opportunities, but also an award ceremony to the “PRSI” companies to receive the exclusive special “PRSI” plaque for their booths to gain further exposure at the show.

Chinaplas 2023 is expected to gather more than 3,900 exhibitors, with exhibits covering machinery, chemicals and raw materials, semi-finished and finished products. Among them, over 400 enterprises are honored as “PRSI”, and more than 100 national-level enterprises are awarded as a “Little Giant”.

Many “PRSI” enterprises in plastics and rubber industries have a strong willingness to expand business and develop more cooperation opportunities among companies. However, they often lack channels and platforms to share their technological advantages and reach reliable and high-quality buyers. At the event, more than 40 well-known experts from the sectors of automobiles, medical and healthcare, packaging, electronics etc., will connect face-to-face with "PRSI" enterprises and help them expand business opportunities.
