For long-term downturn in the steel industry, international cooperation in capacity could have an impact on steel prices continued losses? Analysts pointed to the "Securities Daily" reporters that Japan and South Korea steel market is small, expand cooperation may have generated some positive outlet, help transfer some production capacity, but it does not address the serious overall industry overcapacity situation.

"In recent years the level of China's equipment manufacturing capacity and were quickly upgrade the quality and little difference between Korean products, but the price is low." So now there are a lot of steel enterprises are export to South Korea. Japanese demand for steel products in China is relatively low.
In fact, after the Ministry of Commerce has said that China-ROK FTA to benefit both enterprises and the public is a big thing, Korea will eventually have 92% of the elimination of tariffs on Chinese products, covering from 91% Chinese imports.
