SPECIAL REPORT: MEIS 2019 - Bringing pivotal steel market intelligence into focus

Fastmarkets’ Middle East Iron and Steel 2019 event brought together hundreds of the region’s top industry executives for meetings, panels, seminars and more this month in Dubai.

Delegates left the conference armed with valuable insight to better navigate the industry waters made turbulent by safeguards and other protectionist policies. Participants heard calls from the Turkish steel industry for a focus on fair play in its ever-complicated trade dealings with the European Union and the United States. They learned of the gradual recovery in steel consumption in Saudi Arabia. And they received advice from one of the Middle East steel industry’s preeminent executives, who emphasized the need for product diversification in a period of weak regional demand.
