Arab Iron and Steel Union has been concerned with the issue of the main problems facing the Arab steel industry ,Such as dumping and the protection of national products in the Arab countries. Some Arab countries have issued several laws and legislations in this matter from the imposition of fees or quantification or the development of specific technical obligations and specifications , AISU works with all its means to achieve its fundamental objective of developing and developing the Arab steel industry.
In the past years, AISU has made several recommendations urging Arab governments to impose effective measures to protect the steel industry in Arab countries , As well as taking the necessary measures in the face of unfair trade practices of dumping, subsidy or unjustified increase in imports.
