The world’s iron farming industry is booming, and it is benefiting from an influx of imports of the mineral.
In 2016, the United States exported about $3.2 billion worth of iron to countries like China, Germany, India and Brazil.
It’s expected to grow that to $3 billion this year, according to the United Nations.
The industry is growing faster than the United Kingdom’s, with about $1.7 billion in 2016.
In the United Arab Emirates, which has the largest iron production, exports were $834 million, according the Emirates Iron Industry Association.
China imports about one-third of the world’s steel.
China exported about 2.3 million tons of steel in 2016, up nearly 7% from 2015, according a report by the International Trade Institute.
And India is one of the largest importers of steel.
Its exports are expected to rise another 1% to $1 billion this fiscal year, the ITCIA said.
India’s iron production grew almost 4% in 2016 to 6.4 million tons, according data from the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
But there are signs the Chinese are taking note.
In March, the State Council said it was developing a “one-size-fits-all” strategy for iron export to India, the first such policy for the country.
It will be possible to import more iron from China or other countries, but it won’t be able to do so if it does not pay for the necessary infrastructure.
So, the government will look to increase imports of iron from other countries to help the economy, the state-run Xinhua news agency said.
The iron industry has been growing for years.
In 2009, the world was awash in iron ore.
But it was then that China began to export it to other countries.
That has allowed China to become a global iron producer, said Anthony Coronado, senior economist at the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington.
Iron is also needed to build roads, ships and other equipment, which in turn helps the country keep the lights on.
But that is also a big challenge in China, which is often criticized for slowing its economy.
The export boom is a boon to the local economy in China’s vast province of Henan, which sits on one of China’s busiest shipping routes.
It is home to about a quarter of China, and the region has seen a surge in population.
Henan has seen an increase in its population since the early 2000s.
It now has more than 4 million people, nearly all of them working in the mining industry, according and census data.
The demand is also helping to support the Chinese government, which needs a steady source of foreign exchange to support its economy and maintain social stability.
When China’s exports of iron skyrocketed in 2016 and the world caught up with demand, its government reacted with a stimulus package.
On the surface, it was supposed to pump about $4 billion into the economy.
Instead, the program is projected to produce more than $9 billion in extra exports by 2020, according Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
To help make up the difference, China is planning to invest heavily in infrastructure, including a new iron mine in Xinjiang, where most of China is based.
Chinese officials say the government is investing in an iron mine to produce 1 million tons a year, which would be enough to help lift the country out of poverty and help create jobs.
The government has also been expanding a program to provide loans for iron miners.
The program, called Iron Development Fund, is funded by the Chinese central bank.
The loans are supposed to be used for investment in the iron industry.
Last year, China increased its iron exports to $2.7 trillion, up from $1 trillion in 2016 because of imports from other developing countries.
The country exported about 9.7 million tons.
There are now about 1.2 million mining jobs in the country, with many in the north of the country such as Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia struggling to keep up with the demand for iron.
The industry has had mixed results in the United states.
Iron is used in making all kinds of goods from aircraft engines to clothing, and in some cases, even in medical devices.
Its exports in 2016 were about $2 billion less than in 2015, when the United State imported $5.9 billion worth, according Iron Industry Watch, a trade publication.
U.S. exports to China were about 15% less in 2016 than in 2014, according iron trade experts.
Iron is used by more than half the world, but the U.S., which produces about 40% of the iron consumed worldwide, has been slow to embrace it.
Last year, it exported about 3.4 billion tons of iron, up 4% from last year.
But the United Sates iron exports have been
