High-powered delegation to participate in 'Global Steel 2006'
Panaji, Apr 5 (UNI) Delegates and speakers from around the world will deliberate in a three-day international conference on steel industry at 'Steeling the march ahead: the future of steel is in India', which will be inaugurated by Goa Chief Minister Pratapsinh Rane tomorrow in South Goa.
NSW Minster of Natural Resources, Primary Industries and Mineral Resources Mr Ian McDonald will lead a high powered delegation from Asustralia that will include Nevile Wran, ex Premier, NSW and the Australian High Cimmissioner to India Mr John Mccarthy according to Global Steel release issued here today.
The Australian presence is especially important in view of the fact that India will have to increasingly look towards Australia to quench her ever-growing hunger for energy resources. The common thread running through it all is the theme of the conference--'Vision 2020 Mission 100 Million MT of steel'.
Setting Industry standards over the last two years, Global steel is the most comprehensive conference-cum-convention in the country and stands out not only because of the heavy delegates' participation but also because of the quality of deliberations.
The ministry of steel, Government of India, the Australian Trade Commission, Government of Austrlia and Industry Association like FIMI, AIM, ISSDA, ISA, SIMA, the plant committee, IFAPA are supporting the event, which not only gives it a pan Indian feel but also enriches the proceedings in terms of sheer participation from almost all platforms related to steel making and its ancillary industries.
Global Industry stalwarts Peter Marcus, Marcus Moll, Gerald McCloskey, Andrew Jones and Indian experts Dr Amit Chatterjee, Dr A S Firoz have already confirmed participation, the released added.
