China July sugar imports down 85.6 pct y/y at 60,000 tonnes - customs

BEIJING, Aug 23 (Reuters) - China’s sugar imports plunged for a second month to just 60,000 tonnes in July after Beijing imposed hefty tariffs on foreign arrivals in late May and slashed import permits, customs data showed on Wednesday.

July imports were down 86 percent from 420,000 tonnes a year ago, and down 57 percent from 140,000 tonnes last month, data from the General Administration of Customs showed on Wednesday. (Reporting by Hallie Gu and Josephine Mason; Editing by Richard Pullin)
