In one week, the Singapore International Ferrous Week (SIFW) will feature a strong line-up of international speakers to discuss, debate and seek solutions on a broad range of topics relating to the global ferrous ecosystem, including the challenges ahead for commodities in a post-COVID world and the decarbonisation of the steel value chain from the mining of iron ore to steelmaking.

SIFW, which is jointly organised by Singapore Exchange (SGX), Enterprise Singapore (ESG) and E-Steel, is the annual global flagship event for the ferrous metals supply chain. To prioritise the safety and well-being of participants, this year’s event will be held virtually from 13 to 15 July 2021.

SGX’s Singapore Iron Ore Forum returns for the eighth time and is the anchor event for SIFW. SIFW is partnering leading industry experts Aspermont Media, Fastmarkets, S&P Global Platts and TradeWinds to bring events covering the entire steelmaking value chain, across iron ore, coking coal, freight, steel and mining technologies. SIFW media partners include Argus Media, CNBC, Mysteel Global, Navigate Commodities and SteelMint.
