China has made headway in securing the energy supply, with coal prices falling thanks to increased output, and the power supply has gradually returned to a normal level, Han said.

He urged continued efforts to increase the supply of natural gas and electricity-generating coal.

The country encourages financial institutions to meet the reasonable financing needs of related enterprises, and will reform and improve the marketized pricing mechanism of coal and electricity, according to Han.

The vice-premier also stressed paying attention to changes in the international energy market while better stabilizing market expectations.
