Profits of key steel enterprises in 2019 were expected to reach 180 billion yuan (about 26 billion U.S. dollars) after suffering a loss of 84.7 billion yuan in 2015. The asset-liability ratio was decreased by 7.5 percentage points.

The CISA plans to completely eliminate out-of-date technology such as using medium frequency furnaces to produce stainless steel, tools and molds by June 2020.

The association also urged solutions to issues such as the hike of the iron ore price and growing pressure from environmental protection.
