Happy New Year 2012!
We are just back to office today!
Personally, I spent good time with my family during the vacation.
Japanese Akoya new crop auction has been started. The quality are almost same as last year or little bit better. The quantities of good quality are less than last year.
So the prises are strong in good quality, particularly 8, 9mm.
Demand of good quality are strong in domestic and oversea market. So the problem would be shortage in good quality for this year.
We have to keep watching the situation.
