China, the world's biggest manufacturer of ballpoint pens, has developed its own pen tips, ending a long-term reliance on imported ones.

Taiyuan Iron & Steel (Group), or TISCO, says it has mastered the production of steel components for pen tips after five years research.

The company says China-made tips are ready for mass production and are expected to replace imports in the years to come.
