In his welcome address, the Chairman of Alba’s Board of Directors, Shaikh Daij bin Salman bin Daij Al Khalifa, also stated:
“GCC-based smelters are working together under the umbrella of the Gulf Aluminium Council with the focus on sustainable production, which is what we need today to meet the requirements of the present without compromising the ability of our future generations to meet their needs.
