Reed Tradex has realized that with the Government’s supports, Vietnam’s supporting industries serving the automotive industry, electronics industry, etc., are advancing to become stronger and stronger in response to the local manufacturing sectors’ needs for industrial parts; especially the demands from Japanese manufacturers, one of the biggest investors of the country. And with the ASEAN Economic Community era looming on the horizon, Vietnam’s supporting industries have both challenges and opportunities to handle. Opportunities reside in new machinery, technologies, and knowledge. With a view to help strengthening the industries with essential knowledge the industrialists can adopt to create a sharper competitive edge, Reed Tradex will join forces with Investment & Trade Promotion Centre (ITPC) and Japan External Trade Organization, Ho Chi Minh Office (JETRO) to organize MEGA Exhibition in this October 9 – 11.

In the first half of 2014, the Würth Group generated overall sales of EUR 5,020 billion. This corresponds to a year-over-year growth of 2.8 percent. Except for Italy, all problematic countries succeeded in generating growth again. There are clear signs that Spain, for instance, has bottomed out as they succeeded in generating a sales plus of almost nine percent. Robert Friedmann, Chairman of the Central Managing Board of the Würth Group, said: "We want to close the year 2014 with a new sales record. Although the focus of our business activities is on Europe, the strong euro has a negative impact on the development of sales. However, we do not expect further negative influences in the second half of the year." The operating result of the Würth Group is clearly growing. At EUR 235 million, the operating result is up 14.6 percent over last year (previous year: EUR 205 million). "The good order situation of our customers and the economic development are a tailwind for us and we are therefore looking optimistically at the second half of the year," Friedmann adds. In the first half of 2014, the number of employees increased to a total of 64,891, which corresponds to a growth of 2.1 percent (December 2013: 63,571). In Germany, the Würth Group has a total of 19,744 employees, while the Würth companies abroad account for 45,147 of the Group's employees. In the second half of 2014, we expect the trends of the of the last six months to continue. It seems very likely that we will achieve a new sales record by generating more than ten billion euros.

ASHINGTON, July 22 -- The U.S. government determined on Tuesday it would maintain the existing antidumping duty orders on steel threaded rod and malleable iron pipe fittings from China, despite Beijing's repeated calls for Washington to drop protectionism. The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) concluded in a ruling that revoking the current antidumping duty orders on these products from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. It is the first "sunset review" for the antidumping duty order on imports of steel threaded rod from China, which was introduced in 2009. The antidumping duty margin on this product runs from 47. 37 percent to 206 percent. This is the second "sunset review" for the antidumping duty order on imports of malleable iron pipe fittings from China, which was first issued in 2003. The antidumping duty margin on the product runs up to 111.36 percent. A "sunset review" was conducted every five years after anti- dumping and countervailing duties were introduced. The Uruguay Round Agreements Act requires the U.S. Department of Commerce to revoke an anti-dumping or countervailing duty order, or terminate a suspension agreement, after five years unless the department and the ITC determine that revoking the order or terminating the suspension agreement would likely lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping or subsidies and of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. The Chinese Ministry of Commerce has repeatedly urged the United States to abide by its commitment against trade protectionism and work together with China and other members of the international community to maintain a free, open and just international trade environment

Indian steel wire rod market has been subject to turbulence in the past couple months taking the maximum brunt of appreciating INR and undue price escalation in domestic market. Unilateral hike in long steel price levels in India over the last couple of months has kindled importers interest with global price level remained low under Chinese selling pressure and rather uncertain market in Middle East. It is learnt that nearly 25000 tonnes of WRC is being imported every month at Mumbai port alone. The booking levels are in the range of USD 520-525 per tonne, CFR Mumbai in Mild Steel grade. Per Ton Indian mills are selling WRC at INR 39000 per tonne in Mumbai (basic excl ED & VAT) thereby giving huge parity advantage of INR 4311 per tonne for import. Hitherto India was destination for High Carbon grade WRC but with the big shift in parity WRC in mild steel grade has found its way into the Indian market.

Mainly dampened by steadily declining steel exports to China, which remain subject to 3-8% duties, the output value of Taiwan's steel industry totaled only NT$405.1 billion (US$13.5 billion) for the first four months of this year, down 5.6% year-on-year (YoY), according to the statistics by the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA). MOEA said that the industry's output drastically dropped 38% YoY to NT$953.6 billion (US$31.78 billion) in 2009, when the global market was seriously impacted by the financial tsunami, and then rebounded by 48.2% in 2010, and hit an all-time high of NT$1.5146 trillion (US$504.86 billion) in 2011, mostly due to brisk demand from the domestic downstream sectors and growing public works projects and housing starts. However, anxious about oversupply in the global market, particularly in Asia, due to by Chinese steelmakers having aggressively developed and boosted supply in recent years, Taiwan's steel industry has seen its overall output and export to China continuously slide since 2012. In the past few years, exports had contributed nearly 30% to the industry's output, mostly going to ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) member countries. MOEA's statistics show that exports to the ASEAN bloc made up 21.6% of the total last year, a four-year high, when the share of those to China (including Hong Kong) dived to 14.1% from 23.8% in 2009. J.C. Tsou, chairman of the Taiwan Steel & Iron Industries Association, says that exports to China have steadily declined partly due to high tariffs, and partly due to oversupply in the country. To revive the industry's growth, Tsou has advised Taiwan to step up negotiations with China on striking cross-strait goods trade agreements to offer lower duty relief or exemption on steel exports. Over the past years, imports of China-made steels have significantly increased, to command 25.2% of Taiwan's domestic market last year compared to 9.7% in 2009. Japan has remained the island's largest steel import source, but its market share has gradually slid, to 28.9% last year from 32.4% in 2009, shows MOEA's statistics. (SC)
