Brazilian iron ore exports fall 7.4% year on year in August, ministry says

Brazilian iron ore exports totaled 31.33 million tonnes in August, down by 7.4% from 33.82 million tonnes a year earlier, the country’s ministry of economy said on Tuesday September 1.

Part of the decrease was explained by August having 21 working days in 2020 versus 22 working days in the same month last year. Daily average exports were 1.49 million tonnes, down by 2.96% from 1.54 million tonnes in August 2019.
