The National Power Transmission Corporation has said it will fund about 15.7 trillion VND (748 million USD) for the national power transmission system, up nearly 27 percent against 2012 and 86.5 percent against 2008.

Over the past five years, the corporation has mobilised almost 36.5 trillion VND (1.74 billion USD) for investment, of which 16.72 trillion USD (796 million USD) has been sourced from domestic financial institutions and banks, and 943 million USD from international organisations such as the Nippon Export and Investment Insurance, World Bank, Asian Development Bank and the French Development Agency (AFD).
