Proposal to launch Indonesia steel billet import price assessment

Fastmarkets proposes to launch a steel billet import, CFR Indonesia price assessment.

Prices for steel billet produced by mills using blast furnaces or electric-arc furnaces (EAFs) will be accepted. But lower-quality billet produced using induction furnaces will not be considered in the assessment.
