The AP noted that Tetsuhiro Hosono, Director General of Japan’s Trade Ministry, made the request because China’s crude steel output, which has made an annual increase of 20% in recent years, could affect steelmakers worldwide, including those in Japan, and eventually hurt the Japanese economy. Mr Hosono asked the Chinese government to abolish small blast furnaces and offered to provide Japan’s help to scrap the facilities, along with environmental protection assistance and energy-saving technologies through major Japanese steelmakers, the Yomiuri said.
