Russian Exports Seen Threatening Europe Steel Industry, FTD Says

June 21 (Bloomberg) -- Russia joining the World Trade Organization means its steel exports are a threat to Europe’s steel industry, according to Karlheinz Blessing, the chief executive officer of Dillinger Huette Saarstahl AG, the Financial Times Deutschland reported.

Speaking at the Economic Press Club in Dusseldorf, Blessing said Russian steelmakers have ample raw materials and produce at lower cost than German companies, and imports could lead to overcapacity in the market, the newspaper reported.
