China is taking the first step by opening up its coal mines to foreign companies. The move comes following years of efforts by a coal-mining group to expand its operations to include more coal mines, but a lack of interest in the mines from the local government.

On Monday, the Chinese government approved the construction출장 of 10 new coal mines in the northwestern province of Wenzhou, according to Xinhua News Agency. The new mines will be built at an undisclosed location.

China’s state-owned Xin김해출장안마 김해출장샵hua News Agency said in a report that the project is part of an ambitious coal mi일산안마 일산출장마사지ning expansion plan aimed at increasing production. The Xinhua report quoted China’s Coal Corporation (CC) chief Wang Xinliang as saying that the new coal mines will bring about “new opportunities and the development of industry.”

A report in the Beijing News revealed in August that China has been closing more coal mines than planned. While Chinese government statistics revealed the number of coal mines closed nationwide was roughly 2,600 on average in 2011, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported that the number of projects in China that were set for closure rose to 1,750, the highest on record.

The report noted that China was closing mines due to the economic slowdown in the country and declining coal output from the country. The report pointed out that with the loss of mining income, the government was also forced to spend more on other social welfare programs including welfare, pensions and housing. The report pointed out that the government is facing a financial crisis due to “weak domestic production, underinvestment in the manufacturing sector, excessive financing, and the need for additional stimulus,” it said.
