SEMINAR: Ramifications of China’s war on pollution, government policies on the metals, ores & alloys markets

Women in Mining and Resources Singapore (WIMAR SG) and Metal Bulletin, in association with the Singapore Exchange (SGX), are hosting an industry breakfast seminar on Thursday September 14 to discuss China’s war on pollution, government policies and the ramifications on metals demand, supply and prices.

Join WIMAR SG and Metal Bulletin for insight into:
– How China’s environmental crackdown impacts aluminium, iron ore, ferro-alloys and minor metals demand, supply and prices
– How might US trade regulations on Chinese aluminium play out
– How might the dynamics of future ferrous market cycles be influenced by factors such as Chinese policy, scrap availability and iron ore supply
– Is China’s ferro-alloys a “premium market” compared with price trends seen in Europe and USA and what does price volatility mean for production and trade flows

Date: Thursday September 14, 2017

Time: 8am – 10am

Venue: SGX centre, 2 Shenton Way, Singapore 068804
