But any emphasis on export growth may hurt commodity prices without an accompanying and substantial effort to boost infrastructure development. Chinese copper smelters are seizing on a tax adjustment that eases the costs of exporting the red metal.

Such a build is likely going to concern copper bulls that've been able to look past high shadow inventories in Shanghai bonded warehouses.
