leeco steel employee presenting

Antonio Rosset, Leeco Steel Trading’s Director, was among the featured speakers at the 13th Mining and Exploration Forum held in Moscow, Russia, October 10 -12, 2017.

Antonio was invited to speak based on his extensive credentials and experience in the international metals markets. His speech focused on how a trading company, such as Leeco Steel Trading, is poised to help distributors, the automotive and off-road truck industries, and many other segments import high-quality steel with competitive prices and an international credit line.

Captivated Audience

Antonio’s focus was particularly relevant to the audience of 500 due to the Forum’s theme, Mining in Russia. Moving Up with the Buoyant Markets. By spotlighting the development of infrastructure and more efficient solutions to reduce costs and improve efficiency, was a good match for Leeco Steel Trading because that is its main focus.

“The current market has a mixture of rising prices for raw materials, increased political risks, changes in regulation and disruptive technologies,” said Antonio. “Due to volatility in the mining segment, businesses are looking into strategic planning to make smarter decisions. Leeco Steel Trading is in a position to assist in that planning and help companies avoid the same mistakes made during the previous peak pricing period.”

The Mining and Exploration Forum has evolved into one of the most important and authoritative events in Russia and other countries in the Eurasian Economic Union.
