       The Ministry of Electricity and Energy held a meeting with representatives of the public and organizations from different areas to discuss and elicit suggestions related to amending the rates of electricity consumption to a more suitable rate. This is aimed to support the long-term development of electric production and distribution through expansion projects, connecting non-electrified regions to the main power grid or an alternative energy source, continuously improving electric production, and increasing work processes.

        In accordance with Section 41 of the Electricity Law (2014), the Ministry submitted a proposal to amend electricity rates to the Union Government, who gave their approval during their meeting No. (7/2019) held on 11 April 2019. With permission from the Union Government, the electricity rates across Myanmar will be amended to the following rates, outlined in the table, beginning from 1 July 2019.
