The 19th Global Foundry Sourcing Conference 2016 Successfully Held in Qingdao


2016 2nd China Casting Exporting Conference was Successfully Held in Qingdao

It’s well known that China is the world's largest producer and consumer of castings, but the proportion of casting exporting only accounts for about ten percent, and mainly in the low-end products. In recent years, international buyers have transferred low value-added orders from China to Southeast Asia in order to save purchasing cost. Chinese foundries are facing challenges of less demands, higher labor cost and environmental pressure. The advantage of low-cost products is gradually disappearing. To survive and develop, the foundries need to improve labor productivity, casting quality, reduce production cost, and adopt the competitive strategy and so on.


In view of this serious situation, FSC held 19th Global Foundry Sourcing Conference 2016 and 2nd China Casting Exporting and Technology Conference 2016 during Sep. 21-22, 2016. The event aims to build a platform for casting procurement, negotiations, market analysis and technical exchange. The conference has attracted more than 500 delegates at home and abroad. Conference information is as follows:
