Mr TV Narendran CEO & Managing Director said that “Tata Steel is committed to growing its India footprint while focusing on benchmark operational performance, superior market presence, strong customer relationships and sustainability. Despite a sharp drop in international steel prices, we were able to maintain our overall realizations and increase our volumes significantly in India. The integration of Tata Steel BSL continues and our 5 MTPA expansion at Tata Steel Kalinganagar is also making good progress. We are also looking forward to enhancing our long products and downstream capability through the acquisition of the 1 mtpa steel business of Usha Martin. The phase II review of the TSE ThyssenKrupp JV is ongoing and we are closely working with the European Commission to facilitate the same. In line with our strategy of divesting non-core assets and focusing on India, we have announced a divestment of a 70% stake in our SEA business and we continue to work on exploring similar opportunities across our portfolio."
