"Despite the imbalance in the supply and demand of the global petrochemical sector, we managed to mitigate losses and maintain operational excellence throughout 2023," Agus said in his official statement, Saturday (30/3).

He said, that at a time when the global petrochemical industry is faced with challenges, BRPT, through its subsidiary, PT Chandra Asri Pacific Tbk (TPIA), has taken transformational steps that will strengthen its resilience in the coming years, especially through infrastructure portfolio and the development of downstream Chlor-Alkali plants.

Meanwhile, PT Barito Renewable Tbk (BREN) managed to secure US$ 200 million in funding after the company went public (IPO). Agus mentioned this funding will strengthen the company's steps in expanding its renewable energy portfolio.
