TAIYUAN, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- Shanxi, a major coal-producing province in north China, posted 9.1 percent of GDP growth to reach nearly 2.26 trillion yuan (about 356 billion U.S. dollars) last year, according to the ongoing Shanxi Provincial People's Congress on Thursday.

It marks the province's GDP exceeding 2 trillion yuan for the first time in history, with a growth rate at 1 percentage point higher than that of the whole country.

As an important energy base in China, Shanxi's coal output reached 1.19 billion tonnes last year.

Green development will be further promoted in the province and 20 intelligent coal mines are expected to be built in 2022.
