Data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed that China's coal output fell in July from June's record production. Chinese miners produced 322.23 million tonnes of coal last month, down 3.3% from 333.35 million tonnes in June but well above 281.5 million tonnes in July last year. Output over the first seven months of 2019 was still up 4.3% from the same period last year at 2.09 billion tonnes, the NBS data showed.

Weaker production at domestic mines came as coal imports rose 21% in July from the previous month to 32.9 million tonnes. Imports rose even as China's customs tightened coal imports at several ports by delaying or even halting customs clearance.
