BHP bullish on commodity demand

BHP Billiton told shareholders yesterday it expects global commodity demand to grow by up to 75 per cent over the next 15 years, remaining bullish on the Chinese market despite recent concerns of a slowdown in growth. At its AGM, BHP also said it would stick to a “wait and see” approach in its expansion into potash, as it continues to seek potential partners for a $14bn Canadian project.
