Imports of wool tops were 14,600 tons, down 21.5 percent; imports of carbonized wool were 2,587 tons, down 21.5 percent and worsted short hair were 3,151 tons, recording an increase of 25.6 percent.

The country imported 177,700 tons of Australian wool in 2010, down 2.2 percent due to the decline of Australian wool production. Of which, 173,000 tons were raw wool, down 0.9 percent.

It imported 51,500 tons of New Zealand wool in 2010, an increase of 14.5 percent, being benefited from tariff quota. Of which imports of raw wool were 29,700 tons, showing an increase of 1.38 percent and washed wool were 21,400 tons, registering an increase of 39.5 percent.

The country imported 12,100 tons of wool from South Africa in 2010, down 28.8 percent and 10,200 tons of wool from Argentina, recording an increase of 37.9 percent. The country's wool import is likely to bear great risks and face many new challenges in 2011.
