PHNOM PENH (Cambodia Herald) - The Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy plans to raise Phnom Penh electricity prices to offset falling income, a senior official said.
"If we don’t raise the price, we will lose our investment," said Ton Lean, secretary general at the ministry.
Speaking to reporters Monday, he said the ministry had lost income this year due to increased fuel prices.
"There is currently no serious power supply shortage, especially in Phnom Penh in the rainy season, but it is an issue in the dry season," the official said. He added that no shortages were expected by 2015.
