Since early 2016, the Chinese government has initiated wide-scale supply-side reform in the coal industry by enacting a series of supportive policies.

The policy has effectively tightened domestic coal supply and raised prices in the short term. This insight introduces 276 working days policy in China coal industry supply-side reform and discusses its time range, implementation scope, supervision measures and potential risks.
