In December 1995, the Government of Viet Nam adopted the comprehensive Power Sector Policy. The policy, which was updated in August 1997, outlined a reform strategy for (i) commercializing power sector institutions; (ii) developing a regulatory framework, including an electricity law; (iii) adopting cost-based tariffs; (iv) promoting private sector participation; (v) increasing rural access to electricity; and (vi) undertaking demand-side management. This technical assistance (TA) performance audit report evaluates five advisory TAs supporting these institutional development objectives in Viet Nam’s power sector.
