VTV.vn - Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc stressed at a Cabinet meeting last month that power shortages are out of the question while discussing ways to deal with the country's power issues.

The Government chief stressed that the electricity sector must be self-reliant and ensure transparency and openness throughout the process of investment, production, and development of power sources.

According to the Prime Minister, the Viet Nam Electricity (EVN) shall take prime responsibility for ensuring the power supply while the Viet Nam Coal-Mineral Industries Holding Corporation Limited (VinaComin) and the Viet Nam Oil and Gas Group (Petro Viet Nam) will be actively involved in the development of power sources.

In addition, the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the EVN must be responsible before the Government and people for the power supply. The Ministry has also been assigned to submit a report to the Government on the 8th National Power Development Master Plan for the next period.
