China Oct alumina exports surge to more than 460,000 T -customs

BEIJING, Nov 23 (Reuters) - China’s exports of alumina soared to their highest since at least 2014 in October as Chinese producers of the aluminium raw material cashed in on a shortage in the international market.

The country exported 460,072 tonnes of the substance last month, the highest in records on the China customs website going back to June 2014, and easily beating a bumper figure of 165,839 tonnes in September.

China, which is historically a net importer of alumina, has exported just shy of 1 million tonnes of alumina this year, according to the General Administration of Customs data. (Reporting by Tom Daly; Editing by Tom Hogue)
