The Fluorine Forum 2023 Roundtable Networking & Discussion session was well-attended as ever, where delegates could relax in an informal environment at hosted and themed roundtables: Supply/Exploration; China; Mongolia; Fluoropolymers; & Battery Markets.

It was truly a buzzing atmosphere (with somewhat added frission provided by fans of the Rugby World Cup taking place in nearby Marseille and Nice), with non-stop networking and client meetings participated by the global fluorine fraternity keen to  communicate with each other, and very much welcoming the significant contingent of Chinese and Mongolian attendees.
