Vale Sees Ore Demand in China Growing Coming Years

Vale SA, the world’s largest iron-ore producer, expects Chinese demand for the mineral to keep rising in coming years, Jose Carlos Martins, executive director for ferrous minerals and strategy, said in Sao Paulo today.

China’s demand for iron-ore will rise to about 90 percent of global sales in coming years from about 80 percent now, Martins said.
