The UK manufacturing and construction sectors are reliant on imports of metals. With most value-chains reaching back to China and further, these imports are increasingly being buffeted by macroeconomics, trade restrictions and governmental policies.

Focused on metals, this session will look at how these developments are adding risks to supply and bringing price volatility, and touch on what buyers might do to help protect themselves.
