Chemicals sector growth set to hit 5%

The Dutch chemical sector will book sales growth of some 5% this year, after an increase of 13% in 2006, because of lower oil prices, the sector’s organisation VNCI said on Wednesday. Chemical exports last year rose 11% to €53bn, accounting for over one fifth of Dutch exports to other EU countries, the VNCI said.
