chairman

My dear fellow exporters,

In the face of burgeoning imports, by the domestic steel industry, the single largest contributor to the banking sector’s NPA’s, from surplus nations such as China, Japan, Korea and Russia, the troubles in China are expected to spell further disaster. 

It meant that China, which was anyway exporting around 10 million tonnes of steel a month to countries across the world, would become more competitive. 

Hence it is important for the domestic steel industry to enhance its competitiveness to reduce the adverse effects caused due to such external factors.

 This is for your information.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

(ANUPAM SHAH)
