Bolivian steel company plans to export 350,000 tons of iron

The state-owned Empresa Siderúrgica Mutún expects to close the present administration with an export volume of 350,000 tons of iron, which will allow it to generate revenues estimated at $9 million. From Puerto Busch, Empresa Siderúrgica Mutún (ESM) shipped the first 25,700 tons of iron Fe 63% and Fe 65%, which it negotiated with Arcelor Mittal. The trade operation is for a total volume of 150,000 tons that will ship until December on the Paraguay-Paraná waterway. Also, ESM plans to add two multinationals, one from the United States and the other from China, to its portfolio of clients, with whom it expects to close two export contracts for a total volume of 200,000 tons of iron.
