BORUSAN LOGISTICS BECOMES BRONZE SPONSOR OF 1ST REGIONAL MINING, METAL AND MINERALS SUMMIT!

From 25-26 January, 2011, the 1st Regional Mining, Metal and Minerals Summit, which focused on iron and steel, was held at Istanbul Polat Renaissance Resort hotel with the participation of Karabük Governorate, the Iron-Steel Manufacturers Association, the Rollers’ Union and the Stainless Steel Manufacturers and Businessmen Association. 

Participants evaluated the summit as beneficial for the Turkish steel industry, which is the world’s 10th largest and Europe’s 2nd largest steelmaker. Turkey is one of the countries in the world which has had the fastest increase in steel production over the last few years thanks to its rapid investment in flat steel and structural steel products. The fact that it is now hosting this kind of international event is important for the better recognition of our iron and steel industry. 

Iron, steel and mining sector representatives from Spain, the USA, Italy, the UK, Syria, India, Iran, Pakistan and Germany were all in attendance. The summit took place in the morning with panel discussions from 09:30-13:30 and with round table discussions scheduled from 14:30-17:30. Borusan Logistics also attended the summit as a bronze sponsor, introducing its outstanding practices and services in the sector.
