Baosteel Group Corp., China’s biggest steelmaker, said talks to settle the 2009 contract iron ore prices are still continuing.
“The talks are still continuing,” Ding Shouhu, chief iron ore negotiator for the Shanghai-based company, said in a phone interview today. “We have yet to arrange a meeting with the miners.”
He declined to comment on the expiry dates for Baosteel’s iron ore contracts.
