A new free trade agreement will see China's import tariff on certain types of Australian coal reduced in three tranches from December 20. In this podcast, Jebsen Seo, editor for steel raw materials, and Michael Cooper, senior editor for thermal coal, join Edwin Yeo, managing editor for steel and raw materials, in explaining the mechanics of the tariff reduction for both the metallurgical coal and thermal coal markets, the possible reasons behind China's free trade deal with Australia, as well as the potential impact of this development on both countries' coal markets.
