Managing the Political and Social Risks of Mining Operations in Africa

Coinciding with its emergence as a major frontier for mining exploration, Africa has entered a period of political transition that carries profound implications for natural resources investors. While the colonial legacies of corruption, weak states, and irregular transfers of power persist, a new generation of political leaders more responsive to domestic constituencies and more assertive in relation to external investors is also making its mark. This generational shift on the African continent dovetails with broader geopolitical and normative changes that demand the adoption of mutually beneficial approaches to investment and business engagement. This presentation will offer insights on a range of non-technical challenges confronting investors on the continent and will introduce principles to employ in assessing and mitigating these risks.

  • Industrial & Structural Tube & Pipe Market Outlook Recorded: Apr 28 2016 39 mins
    James Ley, Kim Leppold, Roman Filimonov (Metal Bulletin Research)
    In this brand new webinar, Metal Bulletin Research will be examining the current conditions in the global industrial and structural tube and pipe markets, paying particular attention to the cost drivers for seamless vs. welded tube and pipe.
    There has been a notable de-coupling of the welded and seamless markets in terms of price movements. Through our analysis, we will give our forecast of price movements through the fourth quarter of 2016 and whether this separation of welded and seamless fortunes will continue.

    As the only independent information provider following many of these niche markets, the Metal Bulletin Research team have unique insight in this sector.

    Join them as they analyze:
    • The difference in the ability of welded producers to raise prices in response to rising costs more than seamless producers
    • The effect of Chinese HRC price increases on the welded tube producers who buy it
    • How tube export prices are now supporting prices in the domestic markets
    • How long will the price run-up last?
    • When will seamless mills catch up to rising scrap costs?

    There will be time for Q&A - you may submit questions to our experts during the webinar or before by emailing info@metalbulletinresearch.com.

    We look forward to sharing this market insight with you!

  • Impact of Environmental Policies on the Steel Industry: EU Showcase Recorded: Jan 28 2016 34 mins
    Roman Kucinskij
    The cost implications of environmental legal framework remain increasingly acute for global steelmakers in the light of tightening regulations. EU steel industry was the first to face additional legally imposed costs.
