Monday, 27 February 2017
Latest official customs statistics released by China last week showed that the country’s tin ore and concentrate imports from Myanmar fell by 57% year-on-year to 31,359 tonnes (gross weight) in January, predominantly due an earlier Chinese Spring Festival holiday period than in recent years. Refined tin imports also fell 34% over the same period to 643 tonnes.
