Japan steel lobby criticizes US tariffs www3.nhk.or.jp

 
The chairman of the Japan Iron and Steel Federation has criticized a decision by the US to impose a steep duty on some Japanese steel products.
 
Kosei Shindo issued a statement on Monday. He said the federation has stressed that Japanese steel plate exports "have caused no injury to the domestic industry in the United States."
 
But the US International Trade Commission rejects the claim. Shindo said the move is "unjust and extremely regrettable."
 
Shindo's comments followed the Commission's announcement on Friday. Officials say cheap carbon and alloy steel plates from 8 places including Japan are hurting US companies.
 
As a result, Japan will face an anti-dumping duty of a maximum 48.67 percent.

Asian Franchise Academy is seeking a partner in Mongolia www.asianfranchiseacademy.com

ADB facing pressure to change www.asia.nikkei.com

 
TOKYO -- As the Asian Development Bank finds its regional hegemony threatened by the China-backed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, members of the ADB are pushing for internal reform.
 
During the 50th annual meeting that ended Sunday in Yokohama, delegates took issue with the ADB in a number of areas. German representatives called for the bank to focus more on mobilizing private-sector funding. The Indian contingent said the country can no longer afford to take out loans that are excessive relative to its budget.
 
Although Asia's infrastructure demand amounts to $1.7 trillion annually, ADB member nations are unable to keep pace. Vietnam, which is dealing with growing budget deficits, is approaching a self-imposed borrowing limit.
 
"Many countries cannot increase government spending," said a source close to the ADB. Inadequate tax collection systems leave those places without the means of securing necessary revenue.
 
The ADB, led by Japan and the U.S., has supported infrastructure development over the past half century mainly by lending to governments. But those countries are finding it increasingly difficult to shoulder the massive financing required, and the old model is reaching a breaking point.
 
In 2014, the ADB created a department dedicated to bringing private-sector funds to the public sector, but the bank has a long way to go before it can respond effectively to pressing needs.
 
Member nations also complain about the ADB's decision-making process. Projects should be approved more quickly, Indian Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said. About 75% of the 3,000-plus ADB staffers work at the headquarters in Manila, making it difficult for the bank to be thoroughly responsive to the needs of each Asia-Pacific nation.
 
Changes are being made to delegate more authority to local offices and reduce average approval times -- about two years now -- by six months. But an ADB insider says those reforms are only about 30% complete.
 
"If the AIIB is a medical specialist who only invests, then the ADB is a family doctor who regularly consults patients about their conditions," said a senior ADB official. The bank still holds the distinction of helping Asia climb out of abject poverty.
 
But critics point out that the ADB has become so large that enacting reforms where members see eye-to-eye has become challenging. And with the AIIB looming in the shadows, the ADB does not enjoy much of a grace period. "The next five years will determine" how the Asian order is shaped, said a senior ADB official.

Petro Matad to raise up to US$45mln for exploration in Mongolia www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk

Petro Matad Ltd (LON:MATD) has landed an agreement for up to US$45.2mln of new funds to pay for what it describes as an ‘ambitious’ work programme in Mongolia in 2017 and 2018.

Bergen Asset Management is providing the cash through a staged private placing, in up to 15 separate tranches, as well as a US$2mln convertible loan note (over 24 months and interest free).

The cash is earmarked for the drilling of at least two new exploration wells, described as ‘basin opener wildcats’. Petro Matad also plans to shoot new 3D seismic.

Drilling is due to start in Mongolia this year. Further drill plans for 2018 will depend on the results of this year’s campaign.

“This funding secures our firm work programme for 2017 and 2018 comprising 4 exploration wells and up to 300 km2 of 3D seismic acquisition,” said Ridvan Karpuz, Petro Matad chief executive.

“The Bergen facility is extremely flexible and allows us to effectively manage our cash resources over the next 18 months during a very active operational period for the company.

“We will continue to pursue other investment options that could allow us to either expand our work programme in the event of encouragement with the drilling programme, or alternately reduce the funding required from the Bergen facility.

“In particular, we are in active dialogue with a number of interested parties who are evaluating the farm-out and remain hopeful of concluding an agreement with a farminee prior to the commencement of the first well."

Petro Matad noted that Bergen is making a passive investment, it will not receive any seats on the company’s board.

IMF says Asia facing risks from rise in protectionism www.reuters.com

The International Monetary Fund said Asia's economic outlook faces "significant" uncertainty and downside growth risks from any sudden tightening in global financial conditions or rise in protectionist trade policies.

The IMF, which in April raised its 2017 Asia-Pacific growth forecast to 5.5 percent from its previous October forecast of 5.4 percent, said loose monetary and fiscal policies across most of the region would underpin domestic demand.

"However, the near-term outlook is clouded with significant uncertainty, and risks, on balance, remain slanted to the downside," the IMF said in its Asia-Pacific regional economic outlook released on Tuesday.

In April, the IMF kept the region's 2018 growth forecast unchanged at 5.4 percent. Asia-Pacific recorded 5.3 percent growth in 2016.

The report comes at a time when policymakers around the region are wrestling with the challenge of how to navigate rising risks of protectionism under U.S. President Donald Trump, and a potential increase in funding costs as the Federal Reserve steps up the pace of rate hikes.

Continued tightening of global financial conditions could trigger volatility in capital flows, and the region could see large spillovers if China's shift to a more consumption-driven economy proves bumpier than expected, the IMF said.

"A possible shift toward protectionism in major trading partners also represents a substantial risk to the region. Asia is particularly vulnerable to a decline in global trade because the region has a high trade openness ratio, with significant participation in global supply chains," it said.

The IMF said exchange rate flexibility should remain the "main shock absorber" against a sudden tightening in global financial conditions or shift toward protectionism.

It added, however, that "judicious" foreign exchange intervention might be called for in certain cases, such as when disorderly market conditions or rapid exchange rate movements threaten financial or corporate stability.

The IMF emphasized that foreign exchange intervention should not be used to resist currency moves that reflect changes in fundamentals including in the global trade environment or as a substitute for macroeconomic policy adjustments.

"Adapting to aging could be especially challenging for Asia, as populations living at relatively low per capita income levels in many parts of the region are rapidly becoming old," it said.

The IMF said monetary policy should generally remain accommodative in the region since inflation is below target and there is slack in most Asian economies.

If growth weakens further, some regional central banks such as those in Malaysia and Thailand, may have room to cut interest rates as long as external stability is not compromised, while others in India, Indonesia, and Vietnam should be ready to raise interest rates if inflationary pressures strengthen, the IMF said.

Copper price: Plunge in China imports wipes out 2017 gains www.mining.com

In February copper hit a 21-month high on the back of optimism that Donald Trump's $500 billion-plus infrastructure plan would add fuel to the fire of Chinese economic stimulus already working its way through commodity markets.

Any US stimulus now appears further in the distance and over the weekend it also became apparent that Chinese support for the sector is waning as imports of the metal, widely used in the construction, manufacturing transportation and power industries, decline sharply.

The price is now back to where it started 2017 with copper futures trading on the Comex market in New York falling more than 2% from Friday settlement trading near its day low of $2.4725 per pound ($5,450 a tonne) in lunchtime dealings. Copper is down more than 7% in the past week.

Official customs data from China, responsible for some 45% of global copper consumption, show the country's refined copper imports in April dropped by 30% to 300,000 tonnes compared to the previous month. Year-on-year import volumes fell by a third. For the whole of 2016 imports were at record levels of 4.95 million tonnes.

Concentrate imports declined by 16.6% to 1.36m tonnes in April from the March total, but is still nearly 8% higher than the same period last year. 2016 was a banner year with volumes gaining 28% over 2015 hitting an all-time high of 16.96 million tonnes for the full year.

Chinese imports compare to global mined production of an estimated 20.5 million tonnes per year.

Coking coal price slumps again www.mining.com

The price of coking coal plunged again on Monday with the industry benchmark price tracked by the Steel Index dropping 6% or $12.40 to $199.40 a tonne as the impact of supply disruption following tropical storms in Australia appears to have been less than previously thought.

A trading note from Titus Zheng Shujian of FreightInvestors explains that buyers have stayed on the sidelines in the downward market, "hoping to liquidate their position first until prices settled at the pre-Debbie level":

Currently, the market is awash with supply due to end users’ first wave of restocking in early-April 2017.

An Australian trade source stated that some end users had simply bought too much as they expected the cyclone-related supply disruption to last longer and with greater impact in the market.
According to preliminary Chinese customs data released over the weekend, the country imported 24.8 million tonnes of coal (both thermal and met coal) in April. Volumes were up 12.2% from March and up 31.8% year on year. Total import for the first four months of 2017 jumped 33.1% compared to the same period last year to 89.5 million tonnes.

The steelmaking raw material is now trading more than $110 a tonne below its mid-April peak when the price of Australia free-on-board premium hard coking coal jumped to highest since the second quarter of 2011.

That price spike was also the result of flooding in Queensland that saw quarterly contract prices negotiated at an all time high of $330.

Most producers would probably be happy with a price around of $200 – 14 months ago they were coping with sub-$80.

A survey of economist and investment bank analysts by FocusEconomics show prices are expected to decline substantially later this year. The median forecast is for met coal to average $146 per tonne in Q4 2017 and $130 during the final quarter next year. Coking coal averaged $121 a tonne in 2016.

While coking coal is returning to more expected levels, iron ore's unnerving decline – down 37% from its February peak – took a breather on Monday.

The Northern China import price of 62% Fe content ore was steady $59.50 a tonne according to data supplied by The Steel Index. The recent slump has been blamed on domestic Chinese miners returning to the market.
