What specific advantages are there for us in being a member of the WLPGA?
WLPGA is the unique global network for the LP Gas sector. If you are the owner or senior executive in an LP Gas business the value of being a part of this network is immeasurable.
One of the main goals of the WLPGA is to facilitate the development of LP Gas markets in a safe and sustainable manner. Principally we do this through educating, informing, and influencing all key stakeholders. The WLPGA is a focal point for the exchange of innovative business practices. Through our in-country workshops, regional and global seminars we enhance safety and operational practices. With a broad global and regional communications strategy we influence policy makers, opinion leaders and the media.
“ The first-ever All-Africa LP Gas Summit was held in Nigeria in March 2009. This summit assisted the West African Region to re-evaluate our approach to the growth and development of the regional LP Gas Markets. More specifically, it created a platform for Nigeria to target a ten-fold increase in annual LP Gas consumption in Nigeria by 2015, from the current 100,000 tonnes to 1 Million tonnes. With the support of the WLPGA, we are currently working to achieve this increase, in a commercially sustainable manner and in accordance with good business and safety practices.”
