Formatted abstract
China has been the world's fastest growing economy since the 1 990s. With an average  economic growth rate of 8%, China is the first largest consumer of iron ore accounting  annually for around 50% of total global imports . Due to such high demands and  limited domestic production capacity, China has to turn to increase the imports of iron ore.
Projections of Chinese iron ore imports anticipate an annual growth of roughly 5.5% in  the period 20 10 -2050. This project aims to provide an overview of iron ore supplies  and demands in the world iron ore markets . Simultaneously, it focuses on the  China 's role in the world iron ore market by the analysis of China 's challenges and  opportunities in the context of the global financial crisis (GFC). In addition, it provides  the useful forecasts of Chinese imports of iron ore from 20 10 to 2050 to prove the  increasing demand for iron ore. Finally, it concludes with a brief summary and presents  a number of unanswered questions for further research.
