Management Policies of the president
Established as the first government owned corporation, KOCOAL has strived to develop the coal industry for the past 50 years. KOCOAL is exclusively in charge of stabilization of supply and demand through managing domestic coal mining and importing coal abroad. KOCOAL takes pride in its contribution to the development of the industry with its continuous efforts in technology research, education of mine workers, and the execution of governmental projects.
KOCOAL has produced the total of 180 million tons of coal and imported 30 million tons since its establishment.
