Officials of the border crossings reported that coal export is reviving gradually. Approximately 400-700 heavy trucks have been transporting coal through Gashuunsukhait border point over the last one month.
While nearly 450-500 trucks are carrying coal through Shiveekhuren border crossing per day. Since the beginning of this year, around 2.3 million tons of coal has been exported in total through Shiveekhuren border checkpoint and it is a decreased performance by about 63 percent compared to the same period of the previous year.
Mongolia’s coal export has been grown up by 117 percent in May from the previous month, reaching 2.17 million tons, the Customs General Agency reports. However, it is showing a decrease of 40.9 percent compared to the same period of the last year.
Mongolia expected to export 42 million tons of coal this year, reflecting it in its budget. It can be seen from changes being made in companies’ plans that this plan is unable to be achieved.
