ICDA Successful Members Meeting in Kyoto

The Members' of ICDA gathered in the wonderful city of Kyoto for a successful Members' Meeting 2012.

This event has been impatiently expected since it was postponed by one year given the difficult period Japan went through, but recovered quickly!

The ball was opened by Jeff Mclaughlan - former Vice President - who succeeds to Jim Cochrane as ICDA President. The 135 attending Members of ICDA have enjoyed a perfect programme covering Japan-related issues as well as other more general topics and global hot issues such as the ferrochrome pricing mechanism system, the development of chromite in Canada, REACH-like legislations applied around the globe in addition to other comprehensive speeches.
