General Administration of Customs reported that China’s coal imports in March fell 12.1% YoY as the country has enacted policies to slow imports of the fuel at various ports. Coal imports last month were 23.48 million tonnes, up from February’s 17.64 million tonnes. For the first three months of 2018, coal supplies were at 74.63 million tonnes, down 1.8% YoY

Reuters reported in February that the port of Dalian in northern China banned imports of Australian coal and multiple traders have said coal imports are slowing because of lengthy customs checks. This week, sources told Reuters that Beijing is seeking to cap coal imports this year at 2018 levels to support domestic producers.
