    Session 1: Global and European Steel outlook – Debating the big issues

    2020 has been one of the most challenging years ever for the steel industry. The pandemic brought a halt to production in many regions of the world. The second half of the year has been characterized by a general recovery, with Chinese steel production and demand reaching record levels turning the country into a net steel importer for the first time in a decade. Against this backdrop what strategies have European steel participants adopted this year? What do producers, processors and traders expect for 2021? With demand expected to jump back next year, will positive sentiment be strong enough to recover lost ground? Which markets will perform better and why?
