MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s iron and steel association has urged the country’s government to remain vigilant in the face of steel imports from China.

Although Cámara Nacional de la Industria del Hierro y del Acero (Canacero) reiterated its support for fair trade in a statement Wednesday, it also stressed that competition should be on a "level playing field."

"For this reason, we urge (Mexico’s economics ministry) to remain permanently vigilant with regard to imports of steel products and goods with a high content of steel from China," the association said.

Canacero said it was moved to issue its latest warning about China after a number of European steel producers complained to the European Commission about alleged unfair Chinese trading practices (AMM, Jan. 10).....
