China dominates the global aluminium industry accounting for one third of both world production and world consumption of primary aluminium, according to analysis group Roskill Information Services’ The Economics of Aluminium (9th Edition 2009) publication. The report shows that while China is self sufficient in aluminium metal and approaching self sufficiency in alumina, dependence on imported bauxite remains high despite rising output. However, power supply issues and high costs of production could result in declining production in the longer term and the possibility that China will become a net importer of primary aluminium. Russia, Canada, the USA, Australia, Brazil, Norway and India are the principal producing countries after China. These countries, together, account for about three quarters of world output of primary aluminium. Although some 200 smelters, half of which are in China, produce primary aluminium, 14 companies operating about 100 plants controlled over 60% of output in 2007.The report states that “world aluminium output rose by between 0.15 and 12.2%/y between 1994 and 2008, averaging 5%/y. Growth averaged around 7%/y after 2001 mainly due to explosive expansion in production in China. Output began to contract in the second half of 2008 and this accelerated in 2009, meaning that world aluminium production is likely to decline for the first time in fifteen years and by as much as 5%.“In 2009, almost fifty aluminium smelter projects, with a total capacity of 20 Mt/y, were at various stages of development, but only 10, with a total capacity of 2.8 Mt/y, were already under construction. For most of these projects, no decision with regard to timing had been finalised and the timetables of the others are under review. At the same time, most of the major producers are idling high cost and inefficient capacity in response to low demand and prices. The earliest major project to come online will probably be Qatalum in Qatar, which is likely to be a very low cost producer. During 2008, a new 300,000 t/y smelter started operations in Oman and UC Rusal restarted output in Nigeria.“Reported production (which excludes as much as 2 Mt in China) of refined secondary aluminium and aluminium alloy amounted to about 8.8 Mt/y in 2007, mainly in the USA, Japan, Germany and Italy. A further 3 to 3.5 Mt/y of secondary aluminium is recovered directly into end-uses. US-based Aleris International, owned by Texas Pacific and, formed in 2004 by the merger of IMCO Recycling and Commonwealth Industries, is probably the world’s largest aluminium recycling company. Novelis, which acquired Alcan’s secondary facilities in the USA, and Hydro Aluminium North America are [also] major aluminium recyclers.”Roskill’s report shows that between 1998 and 2007, world primary aluminium consumption grew by a year-on-year average of 5.6% to reach 37.2 Mt. After a fall of 5.3% in 2001, aluminium consumption increased by an average of 7.8%/y up to 2007, largely driven by Chinese consumption, which increased by an average of 23.7%/y over the same period. Chinese aluminium consumption is, by a sizeable margin, the largest in the world, having overtaken the USA in 2004. Japan is the third largest consuming country.Total use of aluminium including all forms of secondary metal, amounted to about 51 Mt/y in 2007, and the report sees little change coming from 2008 figures. Consumption was divided regionally into about 44% in Asia and 27% each in Europe and the Americas, while the major markets for aluminium were transportation (14% of demand), construction (11%) and packaging (6%).The Chinese market (almost 30% of the world total in 2007 and 2008) expanded by about 27% in 2007; Antaike estimates that it increased by about 8% in 2008 and will increase by 3% in 2009. Roskill’s report predicts that “in Europe, North America and Japan, demand will almost certainly fall in 2009 and will either level out or show minimal growth in 2010. The market will start to recover in the second half of 2010, and global growth of 4 to 5%, led by China, is likely in 2011. Average growth in the global aluminium market to 2013 will probably be about 2.6%/y resulting in total demand of about 58 Mt.”The LME monthly average cash price for high grade aluminium fell from a record high of $3,070/t in July 2008 to $1,329/t in February as LME stocks increased from 1.1 Mt to 3.2 Mt. There were signs that prices had bottomed out in March/April 2009, and had stabilised in a range between $1,400 and $1,500/t. The report comments that “lower production and the end of ‘destocking’ is expected to stop or reverse the increase in inventories and push prices up to between $1,500 and $1,700/t by September or October 2009, and they may reach $1,800 t by year-end. In 2009, aluminium prices will probably average $1,400 to $1,450/t. The large stocks are expected to overhang the market until the slide in global demand is reversed, which most analysts expect to happen in early 2010.”In the early and mid 2000s, cash production costs for primary aluminium rose steeply to a global average of almost $2,000/t, mainly because of increased alumina and power costs. Alumina prices have fallen with those of aluminium, but power costs remain high, and prices in early 2009 were less than the costs of many producers.Electrical power and alumina are the most costly inputs in the production of primary aluminium. “A secure, low cost and proximal supply of power is a more important factor than either nearby raw materials or markets, when deciding on a location for an aluminium smelter. The presence of large smelters in Bahrain, Dubai, Oman, South Africa, Mozambique and Iceland is evidence of this. Countries such as Canada and Norway take advantage of both plentiful hydroelectricity and nearby markets. New smelters are under construction in Abu Dhabi and Qatar to take advantage of gas resources.”More information on The Economics of Aluminium (9th Edition 2009) can be found at www.roskill.com/reports/aluminium
Geeta Mohan New DelhiJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 10:49 IST HIGHLIGHTSIslamabad removed Khalistani supporter Gopal Singh Chawla from PSGPCThe decision comes just ahead of talks to be held on Sunday, July 14.Kartarpur Corridor was first proposed in 1999 by then Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.A day before the crucial second round of technical-level talks for the Kartarpur corridor between India and Pakistan, in a late night development on Friday, Islamabad removed Khalistani supporter Gopal Singh Chawla from Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (PSGPC).India had been raising concerns and objections regarding the inclusion of anti-India elements in a committee that is critical to the operationalisation of the Kartarpur Sahib corridor.The other anti-India, pro-Khalistani agents that no longer figure on that list are Maninder Singh, Tara Singh, Bisan Singh, and Kuljit Singh.Gopal Singh Chawla, who is known to be a close aide of Jamaat ud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed, has been using the Gurudwaras in Pakistan to propagate anti-India sentiments.The decision comes just ahead of talks to be held on Sunday, July 14. Sources had told India Today on Friday evening that this matter would have come up during the talks.Regarding our concerns over Khalistani elements, we have been raising it on a regular basis and have marked strong protests. We also asked for clarification as to why they have been included in the Kartarpur committee. During the upcoming meeting also this would be raised. We will ask them what they have done to address the issue, said a source.But Pakistan has removed one major hurdle ahead of the talks. The second round of talks which were scheduled to take place on April 2 of this year were postponed after Khalistani elements were inducted in Pakistan’s Kartarpur corridor committee by Prime Minister Imran Khan.In an official statement on Friday (March 29), India said, “The country has shared concerns and sought clarifications on reports that controversial elements have been appointed by Pakistan to a committee associated with the Kartarpur corridor. It has been conveyed that the next meeting on the modalities can be scheduled at an appropriate time after receiving Pakistan’s response.””India wants to go ahead with the corridor but without any let up on our security concerns”, a source said.While one major impediment has been removed, it is a long way from finding common ground on technical issues to make the corridor operational for Sikh pilgrims to be able to celebrate Guru Nanak’s 550th birth anniversary in November this year.Both sides are yet to agree on certain major issue such including the mode of connectivity. While India wants to build a bridge over a flood-prone creek that leads to Kartarpur Sahib, Pakistan is indistinguishable on a causeway.The other issue is that of the numbers of pilgrims being allowed on a daily basis. While India is insisting on 5,000 pilgrims per day and is building infrastructure on its side accordingly, Pakistan is ready to handle just 700 pilgrims on a daily basis.Pakistan’s willingness to allow just 700 pilgrims per day is way lower than the demand from Indian pilgrims. The number has to go up. Moreover, it wants pilgrims to move in groups while we demand flexibility, an official said.Kartarpur Corridor was first proposed in 1999 by then Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. On 26 November 2018, the foundation stone for the Kartarpur corridor was laid down on the Pakistan side. Two days later the foundation stone for the corridor was laid down on the India side.Both sides aim to finish work in time for the inauguration of the corridor to mark the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev on November 2019.A day before the crucial second round of technical-level talks for the Kartarpur corridor between India and Pakistan, in a late night development on Friday, Islamabad removed Khalistani supporter Gopal Singh Chawla from Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (PSGPC).

Boston, the largest city in New England, is often considered the academic, economic, and cultural center of the Northeastern United States. Beantown is also considered one of top college towns in the country thanks to its numerous esteem colleges and universities. Lots of that talent sticks too: Forbes ranks the city as one of the best places for business and careers.Let’s take a look at some employment trends from a few of the Boston metro’s top business schools Harvard Business School, the MIT Sloan School of Management and Boston University Questrom School of Business—and see how MBAs fare in the job market following graduation.Harvard Business SchoolThe latest HBS employment report shows, unsurprisingly, some very positive numbers for recent graduates. According to the statistics, 95 percent of students received a job offer by the time they graduate, with 89 percent accepting an offer. Recent graduates earn a median base salary of $135,000. Of those accepting offers, 66 percent received a signing bonus, which averages a boisterous $25,000. Harvard graduates mostly end up working in three industries: Consulting (23 percent), finance (31 percent), and technology (16 percent). Students with advanced degrees from Harvard have inside tracks at prestigious companies such as McKinsey, Bain, and Boston Consulting Group.Most Harvard Business School graduates—44 percent of them to be specific—take jobs in the Northeast. The destination with the second highest percentage of graduate job accepting rates is the West, with 25 percent of graduates. While 87 percent of students remain in the United States, 13 percent end up taking jobs overseas, mostly in Europe (5 percent) and Asia (4 percent).To help students achieve their career goals, Harvard Business School’s MBA Career & Professional Development (MBA CPD) focuses on providing students with a variety of resources to encourage their professional, leadership and career growth. MBA CPD initiatives include one-on-one coaching with a trained career coach as well as career development workshops, which help students find their preferred career path and navigate the recruitment and job search process. Recruiting events—such as on-campus company presentations, networking events and interview days—are also regularly scheduled on campus.Harvard has also released detailed charts that show how the salaries of Harvard Business School graduates changes based on their industry, function, and location.Sloan School of Management – MITMeanwhile, the MIT Sloan School of Management’s MBA Employment Report offers a snapshot of all recent graduates’ career choices and salaries. According to the figures provided in that report, 90.1 percent of students received a job offer at graduation, while 97.1 percent received one within three months of finishing their studies. Of these students, 84.2 accepted those offers at graduation, while 97.1 percent did so within three months of graduation. Newly employed Sloan MBAs earn a median base salary of $125,000 per year.MIT Sloan’s report shows that graduates mostly end up working in four industries: consulting (32.1 percent), tech (31.8 percent), finance (13.7 percent), and healthcare (5.3 percent). Ecommerce monolith Amazon hired the most Sloan MBAs (30 students), with McKinsey & Company (26 students) and The Boston Consulting Group (26 students) rounding out the top three employers. This is a moderate change from the previous year, in which McKinsey & Company hired the most Sloan MBAs (26), while Amazon (23) and Bain & Co. (17) came in second and third place, respectively.Since 2014, more and more Sloan MBA graduates have earned roles in the tech industry. The aforementioned 31.8 percent figure was the highest in recent history, which can be seen below.Statistics via MIT Sloan 2016-17 MBA Employment Report.Like Harvard, most Sloan MBAs accept jobs that keep them in the Northeast (37.8 percent). Others leave for the West (34.4 percent), with smaller percentages settling down in the Midwest (4.4 percent), Southwest (4.2 percent), Mid-Atlantic (3.4 percent) and South (3.1 percent). A number of students (10.9 percent) accept jobs overseas.Sloan’s Career Development Office (CDO) offers a range of resources and services to the school’s full-time MBA students. Career prep is actually built into Sloan’s first-year required core curriculum, including a mandatory “Career Core” course. The course is run in conjunction with CDO staff, covering essential career-related communication skills like interviewing, negotiating and networking.Questrom School of Business – Boston UniversityAt Boston University’s Questrom School of Business, 91 percent of students seeking employment accepted an offer within three months of graduation. According to the most recent Questrom’s employment report, these graduates earn an average base salary of $95,471.Of these students who get hired, 30 percent go into consulting service jobs, 20 percent go into general management, and 16 percent go into marketing & sales. Only 11 percent accept finance positions. Employers who have hired 2017 Questrom MBA grads include Deloitte, IBM, Merck, PwC, and local sports organizations like the Boston Celtics.Employment figures from the Questrom Class of 2017 were slightly different from their 2016 counterparts, with most of the students from that graduating class entering the healthcare industry (25 percent), while consulting (22 percent) and technology (15 percent) trailed close behind. The mean base salary of the close also took a moderate dip, dropping from $102,500 the year prior to $95,471.More so than any other school we’ll be taking a look at in this post, BU students stick to the Northeast when accepting a job—69 percent of 2017 graduates remained in the region, with 12 percent heading West. Only 6 percent moved South, and 1 percent took opportunities in the Midwest. Around 12 percent took their talents overseas.All MBA students begin working with Questrom’s Feld Career Center (FCC) during their Pre-Core week in their semester. All students are required to pass the MBA Career Management course that focuses on helping students develop key professional skills and preparing them for internships and the job search process. MBAs also work with a dedicated career counselor who offers one-on-one coaching and strategy sessions. The FCC also hosts career fairs, employer information sessions and other smaller on-campus recruiting events.Boston MBA Employment Future OutlookIt’s no real surprise that students earning their MBA from an elite school like Harvard or MIT will, on average, earn more than their counterparts from Boston University, but it is encouraging to see job offer rates from all aforementioned schools above 91 percent. It also comes to no surprise that most MBAs from these schools get hired into the consulting, finance and tech industries. Most of these students also get hiring in the Northeast, especially those who graduate from Boston University.If there’s one thing that Harvard, MIT and Boston University have in common, it’s the great career services that each offers to their students. Whether it’s the MBA CPD, CDO, or FCC, MBAs choosing any of these school will have a great support system in place to achieve their career goals.
First Edition: September 26, 2012 Today’s headlines include a reports about a round of new polls sizing up the status of the presidential campaign as well as one from The Associated Press measuring public opinion about the implementation of the health law. Kaiser Health News: Branding Health Insurance Exchanges To Make The SaleCapital Public Radio’ Pauline Bartolone, working in partnership with Kaiser Health News and NPR, reports: “As states work to comply with the federal health care law, many are designing their insurance exchanges, where people will be able to shop for coverage. But just the word ‘exchange’ sounds to many like off-putting government-speak, and some states are eager to come up with a more appealing name for these new marketplaces. Peter Lee, who directs California’s Health Benefit Exchange, says it’s up for a new name, and he says they want it to sound fresh, dynamic and innovative” (Bartolone, 9/25). Read the story.The New York Times: Test For Obama As Deficit Stays Over $1 TrillionMr. Romney is proposing to reduce the deficit and encourage economic growth by substantially shrinking the government — unrealistically so, in the judgment of many budget experts — while further cutting taxes and increasing spending on the military. He would inject more private sector competition into Medicare to rein in the quickly growing costs of health insurance for older people and would limit Medicaid payments to fixed amounts to the states. Mr. Obama wants to combine spending cuts and tax increases on upper-income households to close the fiscal hole without fundamentally reducing the role of government or altering the government guarantees at the heart of Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Those programs account for 40 percent of federal spending, and they will grow to half in a decade as more baby boomers claim benefits (Calmes, 9/25).The Associated Press/Washington Post: AP-GfK Poll: Most Say Obama’s Health Care Law Will Be Implemented; But 7 In 10 Expect ChangesThey may not like it, but they don’t see it going away. About 7 in 10 Americans think President Barack Obama’s health care law will go fully into effect with some changes, ranging from minor to major alterations, an Associated Press-GfK poll finds. Just 12 percent say they expect the Affordable Care Act — “Obamacare” to dismissive opponents — to be repealed completely (9/26).The New York Times: Polls Show Obama Is Widening His Lead In Ohio And FloridaFor weeks, Republicans in Ohio have been watching with worry that the state’s vital 18 electoral votes were trending away from Mitt Romney. The anxiety has been similar in Florida, where Republicans are concerned that President Obama is gaining the upper hand in the fight for the state’s 29 electoral votes. Those fears are affirmed in the findings of the latest Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News polls of likely voters in both states, which show that Mr. Obama has widened his lead over Mr. Romney and is outperforming him on nearly every major campaign issue (Rutenberg and Zeleny, 9/26).The Washington Post: Post Polls: Obama Has Lead In Ohio, Edge In Fla., Hampering Path To VictoryWith Romney lagging, Republicans face additional challenges down-ballot in the same battleground states. In the new Post surveys, Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio holds a substantial lead over Republican Josh Mandel, giving Democrats some breathing room in a race in which outside groups have put nearly $20 million toward defeating the incumbent. Brown leads Mandel 53 percent to 41 percent among likely voters. In Florida’s Senate race, incumbent Bill Nelson (D) holds a 14-point advantage over Rep. Connie Mack (R), leading 54 percent to 40 percent among likely voters (Balz and Cohen, 9/25).The Wall Street Journal: Health Firms Size Up Election OutcomesThe close presidential election race is forcing the health-care industry to size up potential policy changes that could eventually switch millions of seniors to private insurance plans. Republican nominee Mitt Romney wants to eventually shift Medicare recipients to private insurance coverage, a provision that his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.), helped pass through the House. At the same time, the pair pledges to wipe away the Obama administration’s health-overhaul law (Radnofsky, 9/25).Los Angeles Times: Candidates For U.S. Congress Will Debate In SpanishTexas’ first congressional candidate debate in Spanish could help decide one of the closest races in the country. Incumbent Republican Rep. Francisco “Quico” Canseco, 63, a tea party conservative, will face challenger Pete Gallego, 50, a Democratic state representative, Tuesday night in an hourlong debate aired by Spanish-language network Univision. … “I want the voters to know that during my time in office I have consistently voted for legislation that will lower taxes, create jobs and preserve Medicare for future generations,” Canseco continued. “One of the many ways I’ve fought to preserve Medicare is by voting to repeal ‘Obamacare'” (Hennessy-Fiske, 9/25).The Wall Street Journal: Rise In Knee Replacements Boosts Federal Health CostsThe number of knee replacements paid for by Medicare has more than doubled over the past two decades, according to a study published Tuesday that suggests the popular procedure is emerging as an important driver of costs for the nation’s health-care system (Wang, 9/25).Politico: Hospitals: Feds Share Billing BlameA threat from Health and Human Services and the Department of Justice to crack down on questionable Medicare billing has drawn a fairly strong rejoinder from two major hospital groups who say federal regulators deserve part of the blame. The Association of Academic Health Centers sent a letter Tuesday to HHS and DOJ echoing complaints from the American Hospital Association that the industry doesn’t have adequate guidelines on billing for some of the most common services. The hospitals said they had repeatedly asked for such information to no avail — and that the problem has gotten worse with the proliferation of electronic health records (Norman and Millman, 9/26).The Associated Press/Washington Post: In Arkansas, Governor Changes Course On Health Care To Help Uninsured, Struggling DemocratsPresident Barack Obama’s health care overhaul has never been popular in Arkansas, a state where even most Democrats regard the law as politically toxic. But with a quarter of the state’s working-age population uninsured, a governor who once said he would have voted against the law now wants to use it to widen government-funded coverage to thousands of additional families. And he’s relying on the move to help prevent a Republican takeover of the state Legislature for the first time since Reconstruction (9/25).Check out all of Kaiser Health News’ e-mail options including First Edition and Breaking News alerts on our Subscriptions page.
