To further carry out the requirements of the central government and the State Council for the development of central enterprises, MCC has put forward the strategic target of becoming the largest, strongest and best'National Team'in metallurgy construction and operation services. It has alsoformulated top-layer plans and designs to ensure that its core technologies in respect of the eight parts and 19 units of steel metallurgy can reach the first-rate level in the world. At present, MCC is undertaking the main building tasks of two ten-million-ton steel plants - the Formosa HA TINH Steel Project and the Baosteel Project - fully displaying the Group's competitiveness in the international field of metallurgical construction, as well as the sufficient trust that the Formosa Group has placed in MCC.
