Mr. Ngo Tan Cu - General Director of EVNCPC said that preferential credits from the Government of Finland have made great contribution to investing in modernizing the grid of EVNCPC, reducing the risk of electric accidents for operating workers as well as improving the power supply reliability for customers.
