According to Alexander Zrazhevsky, Metallurgprom CEO, the company forecast was around 30 million tons of steel. But taking results of the first quarter into account, the company has a new figure – 28.6 million tons.
He said, Ukraine still remains the most export-dependant country among the world’s main metal manufacturers.
In the first quarter 84% of the metal products manufactured were exported. Zrazhevsky doesn’t expect the situation to change during the year. (Ukrainian metal)
