Dear Sir/Madam,

Mysteel invites you to join the International Iron and Steel Financial Derivatives Conference at Shangri-La Hotel, Shanghai Pudong, on 15-16th 2017.

2017 marks an important year for the implementation of the government's "13th Five-Year" plan. Furthermore, more stringent supply-side structural reforms and environmental measures will take hold and have a marked impact on market and pricing dynamics.

The Chinese steel industry still faces many challenges in the year ahead from unwinding the high levels of debt/leveraging to relatively higher steelmaking raw materials costs and increased pressure to limit pollutant emissions from domestic environmental protection agencies.

With the gradual slowdown of China's economy and the progress in resolving heavy industries' overcapacity issues, Mysteel believes Chinese iron steel prices have bottomed out and will maintain modest strength through the remainder of 2017.

The conference aims at providing a platform for industry participants to engage in risk management concepts to manage price risks/shocks by actively utilizing the available derivatives contracts; thereby maintaining healthy and sustainable operations.

In order to promote greater enterprise and industry participation in the use of steel-related financial derivatives markets to control price risk and protect operations, Mysteel have convened the International Iron and Steel Financial Derivatives Conference. The theme of this year's event is "Industrial Revolution and Convergence".

Hot Topics

  • Analysis and Perspective of Domestic and Overseas Marco-economic Situations in 2017
  • Current Operations and Future Development Tendency of Iron & Steel Industry
  • Supply and Demand Situations and Tendency of Price Change for Iron & Steel Market
  • Development and Innovation of Iron & Steel Derivatives Market
