China Iron Ore imports rebound in May


BEIJING (Scrap Register): China's iron ore imports rebounded in May from an 18-month-low in April, but were still well down on the same month last year as disruptions to output in Brazil and Australia hampered shipments.

The world's biggest iron ore consumer brought in 83.75 million tonnes of iron ore last month, up 3.7% from April but down 11% from May 2018, according to data from the General Administration of Customs.

For the first five months of the year, China imported 423.92 million tonnes of iron ore, down 5.2% from 447.35 million tonnes during the same period in 2018, customs data showed.
