CISA Intl Steel Market & Trade Conference - Tangshan China - Mar 22-24 2017

In 2016, the Chinese steel market outperformed most expectations thanks to the stabilizing Chinese economy, the progressing supply-side reform and the success in eliminating excess steel production capacity. The Chinese steel industry reaped a total profit of 33.15 billion Yuan RMB in Jan-Nov 2016 compared to a loss of 52.9 billion for the same period 2015.
Will steel producers continue to make profits in 2017? Will the further elimination of excess capacity and the rising raw material costs support stronger steel prices? Will the downstream sectors help maintain the delicate balance between demand and supply? Where will the Chinese steel export be heading with the developed markets closing their doors?
The 15th International Steel Market and Trade Conference, will again bring together leaders and experts of the Chinese and the world steel industries, to address these questions and share with you their insights on market and price trends.
With the participation of all major Chinese steel producers, steel traders and steel buyers, plus the concurrent business matching salon, the conference will be a unique place to understand market trends, know people and do business.
Serving as an official platform for CISA to release its annual review and forecast of the Chinese steel market, a vehicle for information exchange and dialogue between CISA and its counterparts around the world, and most importantly a window for the Chinese steel industry to understand the world and the world steel community to understand China, the Steel Market and Trade Conference has been successfully convened for 14 times since its establishment in 2000 and has become one of the most important steel events in the world.
