BIR World Mirror on Non-Ferrous Metals

Our Miami Convention provided an opportunity for us to gain insight into Latin America, a region of the world that is growing in importance in the non-ferrous scrap business. Our two speakers - Luis Fernando de Souza and Alejandro Jaramillo - made presentations that were both interesting and educational, exactly what we asked them to provide for our members.

We again take the opportunity to thank them for their efforts. This is an example of the division’s desire to bring interesting discussion to the table, and I believe from members’ comments that we accomplished our objective.

Our Convention in Paris will have the division focus on Europe, and particularly how economic conditions in that very important region affect the world’s non-ferrous scrap industry.

We’ve put together a team of experts, all Non-Ferrous Metals Division board members, to assemble a panel of speakers that will no doubt be of great value to us all.

As we enter the traditionally quiet summer months, let’s hope that the autumn brings with it a more positive atmosphere for our business.
