we realized that one of the weaknesses of the 16th Iran Plast exhibition was

of the 17th Iran Plast International Exhibition reminded: We have designed a
section called "Plast Jobs" for the 17th Iran Plast exhibition to
identify and introduce experts and graduates of petrochemicals to the industry
and invite all graduates to register their plans in Plast Jobs.
