China's raw coal output posted faster growth in March, driven by policies to increase production and supply, official data showed.

The growth rate was 4.5 percentage points higher than that of the January-February period, the bureau said.

Meanwhile, coal imports continued to shrink. China imported 16.42 million tonnes of coal last month, down 39.9 percent year on year.
