China aluminum corporation announced recently, after several years in a row loss, chinalco in 2015 is expected to achieve the comprehensive turnround plate.
Since 2014, although the global economic recovery, but still have not much confidence in the market, the structural contradiction of supply and demand is still very prominent, domestic aluminium spot even below 12500 yuan/ton, copper one-day fall in the six years. However, chinalco, said an official with the company after years of efforts, chinalco’s business scope covers the whole aluminum, copper and rare earth industry chain, for the low market environment have the ability to forecast and quite grasp to ensure that each sector profitability in 2015.
The confidence of the turnround on the one hand, from the benefits of diversification development. Chinalco cultivates the diversification development strategy has seen the results for many years, for substantially less dependent on a single plate, which not only reduced the group’s percentage of loss-incurring enterprises scale, and contribution to the new profit point. 2014 copper block, rare rare earth sector, engineering sector, the financial sector are profitable. In most loss of aluminum blocks, equipped with electrolytic aluminium enterprises own electricity and part of the alumina enterprises also successively achieved profitability in the second half. Chinalco’s chinalco rare rare earth companies become the first to put on record by the country’s radical large rare earth enterprise groups, to promote guangxi, jiangsu, shandong, sichuan and other places of industry consolidation and resources development.
