2 March 2017

Reports over the past 2016 in China had exceeded the plan’s cuts in capacity. Towards the end of last year, the government announced that the steel industry was produced reform. The estimated number of reduced capacity was not less than 85 million tons. But at the same time, the potentials of metallurgy jumped up sharply. By comparing the estimates with 2015, the increase amounted to more than thirty-five percent. The information was published in the American media, with reference to the company Castille.

According to the journalists, «reduction» are zaporoshennye the eyes of Western citizens. More than three quarters of abolished facilities were not in working condition.
