Chinese copper industry and copper market has entered a new era since 2006. China has been the No.1 copper user for five consecutive years and became the biggest copper cathode maker for the first time in 2006. China¡¯s dependence on raw materials import is more and more serious. In the mean while, the new policies on copper products including export tariff and VAT rebate have been implemented since early 2007, which greatly influences the domestic and overseas copper market. Against this background, the Annual China International Copper Conference will take place in Kunming in southwest China¡¯s Yunnan Province in Oct. 2007. It is expected more than 300 people including 70-80 foreigners will be attracted to attend the conference.

¡ñ How to seek for stable raw materials for copper industry?
¡ñ What will the global copper industry head for in the next 2-3 years?
¡ñ Will the macro control policies over copper smelting be executed effectively?
¡ñ How do the implementation of copper export policies influence the copper industry? Will there be more and more substitutes for copper products?
¡ñ How to sustain the development of copper industry?
