EUROFER calls on the Members of the Global Forum on Steel Excess Capacity to agree on a continuation of the forum’s mandate beyond November 2019. Continued international work on excess capacity and related government support measures would contribute to the sustainability of our global industry. Beyond steel, it could effectively contribute to increased transparency and improved disciplines in government trade and industry policies, establishing a genuine international level playing field for industries.
Brussels, 01 December 2023 – Further delays in implementing EU sanctions against Russian steel semifinished products would have a perverse effect, ultimately fuelling Putin’s war machine against Ukraine. The EU Council should reject additional exemption requests from a few member states defending the lucrative business model of few steel rerollers. The trade dynamic that takes advantage of cheap steel imported from Russia while aiding the supply to its military and related downstream sectors must come to an end, states the European Steel Association.
