Indonesia's benchmark thermal coal price (harga batubara acuan, HBA), the monthly reference price that is set by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, rose 2.29 percent (m/m) to USD $53 per metric ton (FOB) in July 2016. The Energy Ministry stated that the higher coal price is supported by the recovery in crude oil prices in May and the start of June, as well as a (temporary) rise in coal demand from India and China. However, compared to one year ago, the coal price is still down by more than 10 percent (y/y).
