    Keynote Session 1: Setting the scene

    Hear from key local market participants about the Vietnamese and wider Asian steel markets, setting the scene over the next day and a half. Vietnam remains on a strong growth path in the medium term, but over the last year tight credit and other issues have restricted growth. Across Southeast Asia meanwhile a complicated environment has resulted in slower investment and fluctuating currencies. How will these factors shape the market in the coming year and how do key players plan to respond?

    Session 5: Raw material challenges

    Iron ore and coking coal prices continue to be driven by changes in the Chinese market. How will these impact raw materials markets in 2019 and beyond? And how will the new Southeast Asian blast furnaces manage their costs in the face of this? Meanwhile, scrap markets are facing their own challenges. China’s scrap market is growing substantially just as it attempts to shut itself off from international markets. Further afield, US supply is being impacted by strong local steel prices. How will the Southeast Asian steel industry cope with such external risks and will local governments support or hinder the use of scrap in steelmaking?
