China imported 26.7 million tonne of coal in March, including lignite, thermal and metallurgical material, up 27.70% from February and up 20.80% year on year. According to preliminary data released by China's General Administration of Customs, as expected, China commodity imports rebounded strongly in March following subdued imports during the Chinese New Year month. Imports over January to March totaled 75.41 million tonne, up 16.6% year on year.

The country exported 0.22 million tonne of coal in March, down 84.05 % year on year, the data showed.

Over January-March, exports reached 0.97 million tonne, down 60.5% year on year.

The GAC did not give a breakdown of the March imports and exports, which would be available later this month.
