China's Rubber Imports Jump 25% in July
China's natural rubber imports jumped 25.8 per cent to 165,876 metric tons in July. Malaysian news sources cite customs reports that show the figure is close to an 11-year high which last peaked in March. China buys rubber from main producers Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia, as well as Vietnam, Cambodia and West Africa. The high comes off the back of China’s strong passenger car sales in July, which jumped 70.54 per cent from a year ago.
