The report of the Ministry of Industry and Trade to the National Assembly recently quoted the EVN report showing that during the 3 months from April 16 to the end of July 16, EVN reduced electricity prices and electricity bills for 27.3 million customers with a total reduction of nearly VND9.3 trillion, including nearly VND9.2 trillion for customers and nearly VND85 billion for 4,275 foundations serving COVID-19 prevention.

In addition to reducing electricity prices, the Ministry of Industry and Trade has also decided to reduce electricity bills for facilities used to isolate and treat COVID-19 patients or suspected patients./.
