Today, PUdaily will present data on China’s TDI imports and exports for the January-August period 2017 and 2018 for your reference.By comparing the TDI import and export figures for the January-August period 2017 and 2018, PUdaily found (see Table 1) that this year the volume of China’s TDI imports increased by 55.32% year on year, while that of exports fell by 26.80%.
