    Chairman’s welcome - Adam Smith, Managing Editor Europe & Middle East, Kallanish

  • 09:05

    Session 1: Turkish economic review

    Turkey’s economy pulled itself out of recession in the first quarter when growth was 1.3% over Q4 2018. On a year-on-year basis, however, the economy contracted -2.6% in Q1 and some analysts foresee a return to recession later in the year before growth picks up in 2020. In this session a leading Turkish economist will explain the major issues affecting Turkish growth and provide an outlook on future economic opportunities and threats that will touch on the country’s steel consumption.

  • 09:25

    Session 2: Partner associations’ keynote & debate

    Slowing Turkish economic growth has curtailed flat steel demand in Turkey’s domestic market, which mills have offset by considerably increasing exports, most notably to southern Europe. What is the future outlook for Turkish steel demand, given the continued financial stress throughout the economy? Will Turkish flat steelmakers be able to maintain exports? Turkey’s steel industry associations give keynote presentations on issues concerning their member companies, followed by an interactive panel discussion on the industry’s challenges and opportunities going forward.

    Session 3: CIS-EU-TR steel trade opportunities

    In spite of increased steel market protectionism, flat steel trade between the three regions has continued at full steam, with Turkey supplying large quantities to southern Europe, Russia to Poland and various EU countries recently increasing deliveries to Turkey. Are these trading patterns likely to continue given that EU steel demand is slowing owing in large part to a weaker automotive sector? How will the EU’s potential HRC safeguard duty revision affect Turkish supply into the region? What effect on trade will increased competition within the EU have once Liberty House finalises its purchase of various ArcelorMittal mills in the region? This session will aim to answer these questions and more, as well as take a look at the steelmaking outlook in each region.

  • 12:30

    Session 4: Downstream coil market developments

    Following the loss of the US market due to the doubling of Section 232 tariff, Turkish galvanized coil suppliers have increased shipments to Spain, Italy, the UK and Canada, among others. Turkish cold rollers and galvanizers have invested into substantial new capacity in recent years, but this has been undermined since mid-2018 by declining domestic automotive sales and steel consumption. In Europe, meanwhile, ArcelorMittal has announced it will significantly cut flat steel production due in part to reduced automotive demand. What is the likelihood of Turkish suppliers returning to the US market now the 232 tariff has been normalised? How are the country’s downstream coil suppliers coping in an environment of increased capacity coupled with lower demand? Will more European flat steel suppliers follow ArcelorMittal’s lead in cutting output? This session will discuss these key points are more.
