China says major coal firms restore 95% of production capacity
China’s coal companies controlled by the central government have resumed operations and are back at more than 95% of their capacity, an official with the National Energy Administration said on Sunday.
Lu Junling, head of the administration’s coal department, told a news conference that the capacity resumption rate for all coal firms has reached 76.5%.
The adverse impact from the coronavirus outbreak on China’s coal production has been largely eliminated, Lu added.
