The Philippine Plastics Industry Association, Inc. is a non-profit organization who stands as the voice of local downstream plastics industry. It was formed on January 18, 1970 with the aim of promoting the cooperation and understanding amongst plastic product manufacturers in the country. Today, PPIA has 161 members, who are engaged in molding, extrusion, weaving, lamination, and recycling. Forty one of them are advisers who supply raw material, technology and machinery that are imperative for industry’s business operations. The Association carries a reputation for upholding the industry’s interest in key polices and legislations, particularly on customs and tariff rules, environmental laws and regulations, power and energy issues, labor concerns, and product standards among others. The association is actively involved in addressing environmental issues and pursuing scientific and fact-based policies on issues affecting the health of the industry, its products, and the environment.
To ensure the competitiveness of the plastics industry, PPIA continues to uphold the principle of a fair and equal level playing field by disputing any forms of tariff distortion in the industry.
