China’s export shipments of bauxite and fused alumina increased month-on-month in August for the first time since March-April 2020, reflecting a bottoming-out of trading volumes in July and signs of a slow recovery, according to market sources.

China exported 42,940 tonnes of non-metallurgical grade
bauxite (HS Code: 25083000) in August. This was down by 43%
from 75,854 tonnes in August 2019, but up by 20.54% from 35,622
