About the Conference



China's monetary policy undermine prices on commodity markets, Chinese steel exports remain impressive.

Global overproduction persists, trade barriers grow.

Despite the traditional prime cost's advantage, CIS exporters should carefully assess the risks and be ready for changes.

Fundamental changes in the export structure of long products from Turkey may have a significant impact on the volumes of CIS billets supplies at this market.

At the same time there are new opportunities for flat products suppliers, connected with the launch of new rolling capacities in Turkey.

Following losses in the cold-rolled products' segment, the threat of protective measures in respect of HRC in Europe significantly increases the risk for suppliers from Russia and Ukraine at this direction, although there remains the dependence of European consumers on CIS supplies of steel-semis, iron ore and pig iron.
