Coal

Cam Pha Port is in Quang Ninh, the number one center of Vietnam in terms of coal reserves. Vietnamese mining company Vinacomin plans to store and transport nearly 30 million tonnes of coal at the Cam Pha Port in 2015 (4 million tonnes over 2014), with 22 million tonnes for the domestic market and 1 million tonnes for export.[2]

The high quality coal is exported to the EU, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and India, while medium-quality dust coal is mainly exported to China.[3]
