SHANGHAI, Jun. 28 (SMM) – Shandong Weiqiao Group, China’s aluminum giant, announced to cut aluminum capacity by 250,000 tonnes a few days ago.

On the one hand, the government has called an immediate halt to illegal aluminum capacity already existed and under construction. On the other hand, the government allows commissioning and restarts of legal capacity.
