Report: BEIJING/MANILA Reuters - For miners seeking to cater to the changing appetite of China, the world's biggest iron ore importer, all eyes are on Tangshan, the country's biggest steel-making city and the drastic measures it's taking to rein in pollution. Tangshan has also warned mills they could face closure if they don't meet emission targets by October. The impact on pricing for iron ore has been dramatic and miners are scrambling to revamp their strategies in response.
