    BHP expect Chinese demand to stay high

    BHP Billiton chief executive Andrew Mackenzie says the mining giant is confident that demand from China will remain strong despite a drop-off in housing and automotive. Mr Mackenzie will tell BHP shareholders at the miner's annual general meeting that China's so-called Belt and Road initiative will keep infrastructure spending high.
