According to Qinhuangdao Ocean Shipping Coal Trading Market Co Ltd, China's benchmark power coal price rose slightly during the past week. The Bohai-Rim Steam-Coal Price Index, a gauge of coal prices in north China's major ports, stood at CNY 558 (USD 80) per tonne, a rise of 3 yuan week on week. Analysts said the thermal coal market saw weak supply and demand last week due to the extended holiday caused by novel coronavirus outbreak, which also led to delay of production resumption in coal producing regions and insufficient demand for railway transport.

According to the National Development and Reform Commission, around 57.8 percent of the coal mines have resumed production by Monday. As more mines resume operation and their capacity increases, the supply shortage in some areas will be gradually eased.
