At the meeting, Deputy Prime Minister Trinh Dinh Dung said he highly appreciated EVN's efforts in the past year when supplying enough electricity for production and consumption, contributing to the GDP growth rate of 6.81 %.
At the same time, he also pointed out many challenges to the power sector, for example, while the South uses more than 50% of the total electricity demand (40% in the North and 10% in the Central), most of power source is in the north (over 50%) and the south can only produce less than 40%. As a result, local power shortages are currently a problem for EVN.
"In 2018, EVN must ensure sufficient supply of electricity for socio-economic development and urgently launch key projects in the south in order to avoid power shortages in this area", Deputy Prime Minister reminded.
Referring to the restructuring of EVN, Mr. Trinh Dinh Dung said that the implementation process in some EVN subsidiaries still "follow the previous form, remain the old restructuring model" . He asked EVN to review and enhance comprehensive restructuring from investment, business management to human resources.
