India coal imports in the first 5 months, overtakes that of last year, but still shy of same period of 2019.

India takes advantage of China's ban to Aussie picking up cheaper Australian coal, so the first 5 months saw a jump of Aussie coal of 13.410 million tonnes in only 5 months time;  It cut coal imports from Indonesia by 5.731 million tonnes.

India tries to be good to the US by taking more coal from the other side of Pacific but from S Africa, the buy is decreasing.
