SINGAPORE/BEIJING (Reuters) - China has granted Zhejiang Petroleum & Chemical Co (ZPC) a licence to export refined oil products, making it the first private oil refiner to win such permission, two sources with knowledge of the matter said on Thursday.
The refiner, however, will still need a government quota to export, said one of the sources.
Reuters could not immediately reach ZPC for comment.
China’s Ministry of Commerce did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for a comment.
