  South Korean port city of Pohang, which is home to steel giant Pohang Steel Company or POSCO, (world's fourth-largest steelmaker) has recently expressed its keenness to further bolster its trade ties with India in the steel sector. As part of further boosting its economic activities and presence in India,  a high-level business delegation from Pohang led by its Mayor Mr Lee Kang-deok recently participated in  Government of India’s landmark pro-foreign investment event  titled ‘Make in India Week’ that took place in  Mumbai from Feb 13 - Feb 18, 2016. The landmark initiative that showcased India’s renewed focus on reviving the country’s manufacturing sector is said to have been well received by dozens of national and international players.  In Delhi, Pahong Mayor Mr Kang-deok met Steel and Mines Minister Narendra Singh Tomar and discussed on various business opportunities available for the steel major in India.  During the meet, while informing the business leaders about the Modi-led NDA government’s attempts  at improving ease of doing business in India, the Iron and Steel Minister is said to have invited Pahong city based major business players to invest in Indian government's initiatives such as 'Make in India' and 'Digital India'. Worth noting is, as per the government sources, the issue of investments by POSCO in India also figured prominently in the discussions and the major focus points discussed included status of Finex-based integrated steel plant (proposed to be set up by POSCO and SAIL), collaboration in R&D and energy efficiency, green technologies and waste utilisation and supply of iron ore by NMDC from its mines to the steel mills in the Republic of South Korea.
