Chinese Imports of Bauxite and Nickel Ore

Minor Bulks

 China imported a record 1.9 Mt of bauxite from Guinea in March, close to double the year-ago level, customs data show. This helped lift overall imports of bauxite to a four-month high of 5.1 Mt, slightly below the year-ago level. By contrast, a sharp drop in shipments from the Philippines meant Chinese nickel ore imports fell to a thirteen-month low of 0.8 Mt in March.
