Meeting in Wuhan and at Shan Steel

Professor Wu Kaiming of the Wuhan University of Science and Technology organised an international meeting for the close discussion of the latest steel developments. He kindly invited a number of participants and the meeting was sponsored by the Hubei Provincial Education Department and the University. At the end of the two-day meeting, Harry was invited to visit Shan Steel in Jinan, a major steel producer in China; the country now produces almost half of the total steel made annually in the world.
