HA NOI (Biz Hub)— Despite a rise in the price of coal sold to power plants late last month, the Ministry of Industry and Trade has not been asked to permit an increase in power prices by Electricity of Viet Nam (EVN).

Director of the ministry's Electricity Regulatory Department Dang Huy Cuong confirmed this at a ministry meeting o­n Monday.

However, he admitted that EVN was doing calculations and would report to the department in the near future.-VNS
