SHANGHAI, Jan. 2, 2015 (PPI Asia) -The Chinese paper and board market was mostly flat in December, with only some prices seeing slight declines.
Levels for all surveyed coated fine paper (CFP) grades were unchanged. Premium end CFP prices remained at RMB 5,400-5,550/tonne ($871-895/tonne), the same as in November.
Commodity CFP grades were flat at RMB 5,000-5,050/tonne.
APP China announced a hike of RMB 100/tonne, but did not get it through. Other producers had also mulled over price rises in the past several months, but most backed off due to poor demand.
