Over the past month, Indian quotes have become more competitive at $375/ton on slow buying interest. This is the lowest Indian quote in more than a year and a half. Thai quotes continued to climb to $409/ton, supported by the currency and improved prospects to export large volumes to the Philippines. Demand from Southeast Asia was also a key factor in supporting Vietnamese quotes, now at $398/ton. Pakistani quotes are relatively steady at $385/ton.
