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.
The EUROFER | Engage newsletter will provide monthly updates from the association, consolidating all the news on our website.
