China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) on Thursday warned coal miners not to temporarily close to avoid inspections as the country’s top economic planner works to stabilize prices amid the environmental and safety checks.

In a statement on its website, NDRC also said railway and shipping companies must make coal transport a priority, especially to power plants in the country’s northeast where stockpiles are low.
