Event Overview

There is no doubt that China continues to maintain its status as a major influencer in global coal markets. China’s 12th Five Year Plan continues to move forward as we get ever closer to the 2015 deadline, and it has responded to uncertain domestic and global coal markets with a decisive announcement of a US$158billion stimulus plan to ensure continued prosperity and growth.

Where East meets West
As China’s interactions with Western coal companies continue to develop, make sure you understand just how China fits into the global picture. Hear from major companies supplying coal successfully to China on how they developed relationships and how they are successfully doing business in this often secretive but extremely lucrative market.

The ‘import’-ance of the import market
Faced with generally lower coal prices across the globe and stiff competition from competing energy sources, China’s coal imports are playing a more important role than ever in keeping some buoyancy in international coal trade. Get the latest on how China’s import strategy is shaping up for 2013 and beyond and how this can be reconciled with domestic coal production plans.

Debottlenecking the supply chain
There is no question that moving coal China’s vast and unpredictable terrain is difficult. But just how is China tackling the problem, and will there be a ripple effect on coal imports from the international marketplace? Make sure you are up-to-date with planned infrastructure developments and how they will shape China’s energy strategy.

After a record-breaking attendance of over 750 major players in 2012, join us in Beijing in April 2013 for China’s premier international coal event and make sure you get face-time with the leading players in this market.
