Viet Nam is importing more coal from West Virginia, the United States


To meet growing demand for coal used in power generation in short and long term, Viet Nam National Coal and Mining Industries Holding Corporation (VINACOMIN) has reached agreements with the US. partners to import more coal from the US.


The first direct shipment of American coal is planned to depart for Viet Nam this September. This shipment will include more than 100 thousand tons of coal mined from West Virginia.


Coal import is expected to strengthen Viet Nam’s efforts in increasing purchase of American goods and services to boost bilateral trade between Viet Nam and the United States. This is even more meaningful as the two countries are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the diplomatic relations (1995-2020)./.
