Chinese Minor Bulk Imports Rise

Steel

China's combined imports of bauxite, alumina, steel scrap, fertiliser, wood pulp and nickel, manganese, copper and chromium ores rose to an 18-month high of 16.9 Mt in July, up 2.5 Mt year-on-year, according to China Customs data. This was primarily due to a 2.0 Mt increase in bauxite imports to 5.1 Mt, also the highest level since January 2014. Nickel ore imports rose to an 11-month high of 5.0 Mt in July, although they were still down by 0.1 Mt year-on-year.
