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. Asia needs cheap and stable electricity supply.
