MEG imports from Canada and Japan increased substantially by 802.19 percent month-on-month and 664.91 percent m-o-m, respectively, in August 2012. Singapore, South Korea, Iran and Saudi Arabia were the other countries from which China imported more quantity of MEG in August compared to previous month.
