Targeted at those seeking an insight into the seaborne iron ore and Latin American steel markets, CRU’s Latin American Iron and Steel Trends conference aims to address these issues.

It is the second time CRU has organised such a conference, the previous attracting 150 delegates to Rio de Janeiro last July where iron ore played a dominant role in discussions with delegates being told that China’s share of world traded iron ore will increase nearly 15% from 2008 levels to around 530Mt (Fe content) by 2014.

Latin America has performed well throughout the economic crisis. The level of economic activity is already well above pre-crisis highs, making this once turbulent region among the most dynamic in the world.

The event takes place on 27-29 April at the Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Copacabana Hotel, Brazil.
