In the fourth time that the Mexican steel chamber celebrates
its annual gathering Primetals was the main contributor for
the event. The conferences and debates were mainly focused
on the global economy and the situation that the steel market
is going through, not only in Mexico, but in the world. The risks
and opportunities of the industry; the Chinese steel imports
and the impact it is having on the Mexican economy; how the
local steel-making companies are battling against this situation;
as well as the environmental concerns were the key topics. 
During the event there were important meetings between our
upstream COO Dr. Heiner Roehrl and Máximo Vedoya (CEO of
Arcelor Mittal Mexico), Alonso Ancira (Controlling shareholder
and Chairman of the Board) and Eduardo Garza T. (CEO of
FRISA).
