EcoMin proposes energy market plan

The Economy Ministry should begin opening its electricity market to foreign competition at the beginning of next year, with about 20 large consumers allowed to import up to one-third of their energy needs from abroad. The ministry’s plan envisages that all consumers of more than 9 GwH of electricity annually will be able to import without restrictions after January 1, 2005.
