8th China Bitumen Traders’ Conference 2014

In 2014, with the “new normal” growth of the Chinese economy, the country’s road and railway infrastructure construction has been carried out steadily. In September, the central government plans to enhance its micro-stimulus measures and local governments are taking a bigger effort to meet their growth targets.

At the close of the 12th Five-Year Plan period, there might be an upsurge in bitumen demand because many road construction projects have their deadlines to meet. According to the Plan, by the end of 2015, China’s total mileage of highways, freeways, class II and above highways and rural highways will reach 4.5 million km, 108,000 km, 650,000 km and 3.9 million km respectively. Besides, road maintenance, reconstruction and extension will generate huge demand for bitumen, especially highways constructed before 2009.

This year, bitumen winter storage is fading out. Prices saw a unilateral fall during March to June and hit a new low in recent years in June despite normal demand. As for imports, there is a notable increase in this year’s customs statistics about bitumen imports because the number of imported cutback bitumen for declare has sharply increased due to lack of detailed regulations.

Under such circumstances, CBI BIZ will hold the 8th China Bitumen Traders’ Conference 2014 in Beijing during 11-13 December. We will invite nearly 300 industry players to discuss solutions to deal with changes in the Chinese bitumen market. We sincerely invite you to join us!
