Alexey Kondratyev, Director of Public Relations of the Association and Editor-in-Chief of Rusmet Rating Agency, spoke at the webinar of Steel Mint India on June 12th with a presentation on the subject by Victor Kovshevny, Director of RUSLOM.COM, and also answered questions of the event participants.
The webinar was dedicated to the topic “Can Russia become an alternative source for South Asia amid the EU’s scrap export ban talks?”.
During the event participants were informed on the current state of scrap metal industry in Russia, trends of production and consumption of all types of scrap metal in Russia, including specific forecasts till 2030, current export status quo in relation to EU and CIS, export potential to South Asia as well as on taxes and government policies affecting the industry.
The representative of RUSLOM.COM responded positively to the key question regarding the potential of Russian scrap exports to South Asia, in percentage terms for specific types of scrap, in case of a more favourable domestic and foreign situation for domestic scrap metal producers, including the removal of certain restrictions and the adoption of measures to promote scrap exports – a policy which the Association continuously and consistently formulates and defends both domestically and representing the industry abroad.
