Vietnam: Cement producers including Vissai Cement and the Vietnam Cement Industry Corporation (VICEM) have reported difficulties in buying coal domestically. Hoang Manh Truong, the chairman of Vissai Cement, said that the company mostly used imported coal in 2018 and this experience has been mirrored by VICEM, according to the Viet Nam News newspaper. The situation has been blamed on a sharp rise in local demand due to new cement plants and no new coal mines.
