WPO members join forces to help China avoid Coronavirus
February 2020 – In line with its mission ‘Better quality of life through better packaging for more people’, WPO (World Packaging Organisation – www.worldpackaging.org) President, Pierre Pienaar, started a campaign among members to check how best some countries could contribute with the crises in China due to the advance of the Coronavirus. “WPO has significant influence through its global network. After being contacted by our members in China, CPF (China Packaging Federation) , CEPI (China Nat'l Export Commodities Packaging Research Institute) and GPC, we decided to take some action.”
The immediate result was the mobilisation of Turkey, Lebanon, Palestine and Brazil in finding some suppliers for masks, protective clothing and gloves which they were able to export to China. “All efforts worked very well and the immediate demand was satisfied”, celebrates Pierre. According to the WPO Chinese members, remarkable local help came from Alibaba that offered fast and safe logistics to distribute the imported items.
“WPO is not only about packaging; it is also about helping people and/or assisting countries in times of need”, states Pierre. He also reminds that WPO is a non-profit international body focused in promoting network that facilitates solutions for global challenges in all areas.
