Wu Chenhui, an independent analyst of rare earth in Beijing said, China as the largest rare earth resources holder and producer, will keep supply for reasonable demand of the world market. “Besides, promoting the development of the rare-earth sector has been China’s consistent policy, and further enhancing the supervision of the whole industry chain is needed, including producers and end users,” he said.

Wu said the deposits constitute a strategic resource of special value that could be used by China as a countermeasure in the trade war with the United States.
