The Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works will take part in this year's first international exhibition, ALUMEX/MEM Middle East.
The exhibition dedicated to the aluminium and steel industries opens on ------ in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. It will serve as a platform for accessing the market for suppliers of raw materials, semi-finished goods, and equipment for ferrous and non-ferrous industries and metal working. Over 7,000 exhibitors and guests from different countries are expected in Dubai.
The exhibition will provide exhaustive information on the steel markets in the Middle East. The growth prospects of the steel making sector in this region have never been brighter. Over the recent years the annual growth rate of steel production has been about 6 per cent, compared to the global 0.8 per cent, which makes the Middle East steel making sector one of the fastest growing in the world.
ALUMEX/MEM's traditional venue is one of the best of its kind in the region. Dubai is the business hub of the Middle East thanks to its propitious business environment. MEM 2005, which is part of the general exhibition, will feature steel making technologies, raw materials and equipment, metal products, alloys, industrial safety systems and equipment, etc.
MMK has taken part in this exhibition on several occasions in the past. This year ALUMEX/MEM opens the season of international exhibitions for our Company which will exhibit its products there, including the first-time presentation of colour coated steel sheet.
