BEIJING, June 10 (Reuters) - China’s May coal imports rose 7% from the month before to 27.07 million tonnes, Reuters calculations based on customs data showed on Monday, as power utilities boosted purchases ahead of the peak-demand season.

Arrivals in May also surged 21% from the same month last year, according to calculations. Imports for the first five months of 2019 came to 127 million tonnes, the General Administration of Customs said in a statement.
