Tony Cheng: China acts on coal mining safety

Bbc1 From BBC NEWS: Thousands die each year in Chinese mining accidents

China government has set up a special department to try and cut the country’s high number of coal mining accidents.

The office will bring together experts from different departments to oversee a budget of $361m allocated to safety and improvement projects.

As the demand for energy has increased in China, suppliers have been pressured to provide coal faster, leading to a dramatic increase in accidents.

The announcement came as an accident in Chongqing killed at least 18 miners.
