Most companies in lead and zinc fields have turned loss into gain in the second half of 2009 and the production keeps increasing gradually.
Both lead and zinc prices rising strongly but the demand recovers slowly. How long can the bullish movements of the metals last with the speculative buying from investors? China will continue to close down the backward production smelters and integrate mining resources, so how the policies will impact on lead and zinc markets?

Will lead ingot market continue to firm up strongly in 2010? Participants expect 2010 to be the spring of steel industry. Will zinc market continue its bullish performance or retreat to its fundaments. How long will the easy monetary conditions prevail? How far is inflation away from us? This summit will focus on the above topics.
The summit is designed to build an internationalized platform of information exchange for the global participants in both lead and zinc market to discuss the market condition and the future movement.
