China’s decision to ban low-grade scrap imports was driven by its ongoing environmental reform measures.
More recently, a trade spat with the US has led to further restrictions on several copper products.
How have these policies impacted the copper and copper raw materials markets?
In this webinar, we discuss the changes we have seen so far this year and how Metal Bulletin has responded in order to continue to provide market-reflective pricing, including the launch of new blister copper and equivalent grade copper cathode price assessments.
We will cover:
• The impact of China’s trade and environmental policies on the wider copper market
• Changing trade flows for copper raw materials
• How new Metal Bulletin price assessments reflect the shifting market dynamics
There will be time for Q&A included. If you would like to submit a question in advance, or would like any further information on the webinar, email us: email@example.com.
