HÀ NỘI — Vietnam Electricity (EVN) needs total investment capital of VNĐ93.2 trillion (US$3.97 billion) for power projects this year and it will focus all resources to ensure the progress of such projects, according to the group.
With the demand for large capital, EVN targets to effectively use ODA and foreign loans, and to disburse ODA loans as scheduled, it said.
