Mixed paper- commodity code 470790 

Globally Mixed paper export increased this month, as 113,678 tonnes were exported in May 2018 compared to 99,570 tonnes in April 2018.

The UK exported 20,530 tonnes to China in May 2018 which is an increase on April 2018’s figure of 12,467 tonnes. This remains interesting as supposedly mixed paper exports to China have been banned since the beginning of the year.

Exports to India fell to 31,540 tonnes in May 2018 from 43,863 tonnes in April 2018. This shows that India has calmed its interest in mixed paper after the high number shown in March when they received 62,252 tonnes.

The UK has not exported as much mixed paper to Indonesia as it did in April. In May Indonesia took 8,371 tonnes of mixed paper, a sharp drop of around half from April when it received 16,487 tonnes.
