HONG KONG, July 8 (Reuters) - H-Shares of Datang International Power Generation surged as much as 21.5 percent in resumed trade on Tuesday, after the company announced a deal to restructure its coal chemical business.

The power producer said late on Monday that it had signed a framework agreement with China Reform Holdings Corporation Ltd to sell its coal-chemical and related assets.
