JAKARTA, Nov 30 - Indonesia is expected to produce between 270-280 million tonnes of coal in 2010, up from 250-260 million tonnes this year, helped by higher demand from China and India, the chairman of the Indonesian Coal Producers Association said on Monday.

The world's largest thermal coal exporter may export between 220-225 million tonnes in 2010, up from an estimated 215 million tonnes this year, Bob Kamandanu told Reuters in an interview.

Indonesian producers may have secured around 10 million tonnes of new coal supply contract with Chinese buyers for 2010, he added.
