Capitalise on the changing dynamics of coal imports in South East Asia
The Emerging Asian Coal Markets Conference is the fastest growing Coaltrans event and saw three times the number of delegates expected last year. This is representative of the growth of the coal market; South East Asia continues to see rises in coal consumption and Vietnam is leading the way as the fastest growing coal consumer.
Appetite for coal in ASEAN countries is fuelled by growing population sizes, increasing rates of electrification and new infrastructure projects. With more relaxed rules on coal usage than other parts of the world and the availability of cheap Indonesian coal, the market is set to continue to grow.
As nanscent markets there are some growing pains such as overcoming logistics bottle necks at ports, changing regulations, negotiating long term supply contracts and ensuring efficiency in the coal supply chain. We will be covering all of these topics in our agenda.
The Emerging Asian Coal Markets event looks at the supply and demand in this region with end user speakers from Vietnam, The Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines. These include EVN, Department of Energy of the Philippines, EGAT, TNB, Hoa Phat Steel, Quezon Power and Meralco.
This year we are running a field trip on Monday 5th November to an EVN thermal power plant where visitors can hear straight from EVN about their procurement procedures and see how their operations run. The field trip will also visit the largest port in Northern Vietnam. You will gain an understanding of the scale of the coal transshipment that is currently happening there and the future needs if this is to increase.
