At the meeting, the State leader hailed the outstanding workers along with the 100,000-strong workforce of the EVN for their great contributions to ensuring the stable and reliable operation of the national power network.

President Phuc highlighted that the electricity industry has ensured power supply for production, daily life and national defense-security in any circumstances. The national electricity network has reached every corner of the country, with 99.8% of households nationwide gaining access to electricity.

He lauded the strong development of the industry, which has the biggest electricity capacity among Southeast Asian countries.  The President mentioned the challenges and difficulties facing the industry, one of which is a shortage of skilled workers and technicians.

President Phuc urged EVN to focus on training young workers and taking good care of their lives and families.
