The Euro zone sovereign debt problems continue to threaten the global recovery since 2010 and Chinese inflation is of a significant concern. The people's Bank of China raised interest rates on 7th July, which is the third rate hike this year, but China's CPI remains climbing up. Chinese and even global economies could be unraveled by uncertain exogenous factors but which also could exacerbate current domestic economic challenges.

And since the beginning of 2011, the fused alumina sector has remained largely sluggish and this is further compounded by rising production cost of raw material and electricity tariff. Also supply of brown fused alumina is superfluous to the demand. How can smelters find a solution to current challenges? As the largest producer of brown fused alumina, what strategy can China adopt to surmount current challenges and have breakthrough in future? What is the likely direction for fused alumina?

Bauxite: In 2011, export quotas of bauxite decreased by 100,000t, leading to most smelters having to suspend production and with the price of high-quality bauxite rising sharply. The questions being asked by stakeholders includes, but not limited to, what more challenges lie ahead for producers? Given that the WTO has found and complained about Chinese strategies of restricting the export of rare resources, how does their pronouncement impact on Chinese government policy and on bauxite exports? Will bauxite be in tight supply in the coming years?

Magnesia: Export prices of magnesia keep increasing in the first half-year of 2011, and then export market steps into sluggish situation with weak demand from overseas consumers. Will the price keep at the high level next year? As a major producer of magnesia, China plays an important role in the world. Facing the problem that WTO ruled against China’s restrictions over nine raw materials, will China change the policies on export quotas next year, and what impact will China bring the whole magnesia market? As high-quality magnesia becomes less and less, the supply will become tight in the next 5 years and how can Chinese refractory producers find a way to survive?

Silicon Carbide: The WTO ruled Chinese export restrictions illegal. What actions will Chinese government take for the silicon carbide export? Some European countries are known to reduce subsidies for PV, and PV market goes down all the way; As China exports 90% of PV modules to Europe, how does the China’s PV industry develop in the following years? And will the current sluggish green silicon carbide market able to recover in the next six months? The black silicon carbide market keeps stable for the moment, but as Baoshan Iron and Steel reduced its price, will black silicon carbide price can keep stable or not?
