Coal imports in East Asia

I saw these interesting charts from Index Mundi. Data until 2013 only but useful nonetheless. Source is US EIA. The medium-users in East Asia — MY, TH and PH.

The medium users, TW and HK. VN is a small user but there was a huge uptick in importation starting 2005.

And the big coal users in East Asia — China, Japan and S.Korea.

So claims like “East Asia coal use has declined” are not true.
And even “South Asia coal use has declined” is also not true.

Asia needs cheap and stable electricity supply. To grow faster, more sustainably, and uplift hundreds of millions of people from poverty.
