Electricity of Vietnam will produce enough power to keep Vietnam going through the dry months, an official announced has said.
“The power supply in the southern region may be in a little tight, but we don't expect any shortages thanks to the 500kV Pleiku-My Phuoc-Cau Bong electricity transmission line," said Dang Huy Cuong, head of the Department for Electricity Adjustment under the Ministry of Industry and Trade during a press briefing on the opening of the 437-km line linking the five provinces of Gia Lai, Dac Lac, Dac Nong, Binh Phuoc and Binh Duong, and Ho Chi Minh City.
"The north and central regions will not lack of power barring any major problems.” 
Vietnam’s electric production, in the first four months of this year, increased 9.6 percent over the same period last year, said Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Do Thang Hai.
Meanwhile, power sold to manufacturing firms was estimated at 41.9 billion kWh, up nearly 10.3 percent between January and April, he said.
