Listen: Petrochemical M&A strategies in a world of political unknowns

Paul Harnick, head of chemicals and the global chemicals chief operating officer at KPMG, joins Yuriko Kato, reporter in the European petrochemicals team, to discuss the latest trends in M&As in the petrochemicals industry.

Despite significant political unknowns, from Brexit negotiations to the implementation of Trump’s policies, the huge appetite for M&As continue across the globe. In this podcast, Paul discusses how Middle Eastern companies have reacted to the eroding advantage of ethane over oil as oil prices remain at low levels, the shift in behavior of Chinese companies, as well as the challenges that lie ahead for the industry this year.
