China sets its H1 2013 export quota for rare earth resources at 15.5K metric tons to be split among 24 domestic producers. The quota is not always met due to weak global demand; China exported only ~13K metric tons of rare earth ores, metals and compounds in the first 11 months of this year, less than half the full-year 2012 quota.
