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.

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 email@example.com.
We look forward to sharing this market insight with you!
Following a turbulent time for OCTG and recent developments for Linepipe (including 3 million tonnes of orders in March), are we about to see a market turnaround?

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.
In 2016, EU carbon market is forecasted to turn into deficit for first time because of reduction in the number of free allocations. Coupled with sliding steel prices amid exuberant cheaper steel supply from China, it is expected to result in EU steel makers potentially struggling to absorb the new costs in the light of thinning margins.
In this webcast Roman Kucinskij, consultant with Metal Bulletin Consultancy will address:
•The development of CO2 emissions and carbon intensity for steel making sector
• What is the estimated cost impact of the environmental regulations for EU steel sector?
• Which are the most environmentally savvy steelmakers in the EU?
The presentation begins with a global analysis and outlook for the steel long products market, focusing on recent developments in the Chinese construction sector and the implications for long products. We then turn to MBR’s outlook for crude steel production, and the recent trends in the manganese industry and our outlook for the manganese sector, before highlighting our expectations for stainless steel production and analysing recent developments in the chrome industry and our outlook for 2016.
