With the gradual decline in market inventory, white fused alumina prices stabilized. In addition, due to the stable price of raw material alumina, it is expected that in the coming week, China's white fused alumina prices will continue to run smoothly.
China's high-grade bauxite raw ore resources remained in tight supply, leading the prices continue to maintain high, supported by this, price of high-grade calcines bauxite are also relatively firm.
