Luo Tiejun, deputy director of the Ministry of industry and information technology, September 15th, held in Shanghai on 2010 at the international steel city forum, said that the whole industry of iron and steel should guarantee a certain amount of exports, participate in international trade exchanges and participate in international competition moderately.
It is understood that with the gradual expansion of international steel demand, China has exported 23 million 580 thousand tons of steel in the first 6 months of this year, up 152.3% over the same period. In July, China's steel exports fell down, exports of Steel 4 million 550 thousand tons, 1 million 70 thousand tons less than in June, the first decline since March this year. The August data just released by the National Bureau of statistics show that China exports 2 million 800 thousand tons of steel, nearly 40% lower than in 7 months. Luo Tiejun expects that the export of steel will be 40 million tons this year, up 60% from last year, but about 30% lower than in 2007 and 2008.
Luo Tiejun said that the steel industry should not restrict exports like crude oil and raw coal, but should take part in international competition and ensure trade exchanges with the world.
On the influencing factors of current steel exports, the General Administration of Customs Statistics Department of statistics office director Huang Guohua said, the second half of the year should not have restrictions on steel export policies; further decline in steel production, while the downstream demand is relatively stable, the export price formation support; the US Japan economic stimulus plan to form a certain international demand; cost pressures will get a bit of relief, the current domestic steel prices have received three mines iron ore price than the three quarter fell 10% to 13%, all these factors are conducive to China's steel exports. And trade protectionism is rising, the risk of exchange rate fluctuations, the output energy and the domestic steel prices continue to intensify the contradiction and the expansion of the global economic recovery is uncertain factors not conducive to exports of steel.
