The Chemical Industries Association, the trade body representing

British chemicals manufacturers, has hired Politics International to

provide public affairs consultancy. It follows a 15-way pitch in which

CIA’s current consultancy Westminster Strategy did not take part.



Politics International, which starts work on the account this month,

will mainly provide monitoring as well as occasional strategic

counsel.



Issues currently facing the association include the value of sterling,

which they see as damaging chemicals exports, environmental management

concerns such as landfill and industrial relations.



Chris Guyver, director of Politics International, said: ’The Chemical

Industries Association is blue chip and a benchmark for where we have

got as an agency. It is a significant win.’



The Chemical Industries Association counts 170 members, ranging from

petrochemical giants like Shell, BP and ICI to small and medium-sized

chemicals manufacturers.
