In Korea, average prices went down by US$ 5/ton or 0.50 per cent and were assessed at US$ 995/ last week, as compared to its previous week ending Nov 22nd.

In SE Asia, average PX prices also fell by US$ 5/ton and were quoted at US$ 1015/ton last week, down 0.49 per cent as against its previous week.
