JAKARTA (Reuters) - The Indonesian Coal Miners Association said in a statement on Wednesday members would cut their 2020 production by between 15%-20% from an earlier target to support prices amid low demand due to coronavirus pandemic.

Indonesia had initially set an output target of 550 million tonnes this year.

“Hopefully this production cut can prop up global coal prices by reaching a balance of supply and demand in the global seaborne market,” the statement said.
