Burning coal for electricity is lessening in many countries, but the Bangladesh story is somewhat different.Neglecting the cautious approach taken by the developed countries towards environment protection, Bangladesh is planning to increase reliance on coal.Rising coal imports on the back of its high demand have opened up opportunities for overseas suppliers while compelling the government to mull over possible elimination of import duty to clear the path.To bring a focus on this interesting situation of the Coal industry, SteelMint Events is coming up with 'The Bangladesh Coal Conference 2020' with an objective to explore all the new opportunities and understand the coal industry scenario in Bangladesh.
Indian flat steel prices are rallying with prices that have hit record-high levels.

Join us as we interact with our panel of experts on a plethora of pressing issues.
Steel pipes and tubes industry is one of the important segments of the Indian Steel sector, it contributes around 8 % of India's steel consumption.
