Asia: Lower Mekong

Second Lower Mekong Regional Regulatory Workshop

Dates: April 23-25, 2014
Location: Hanoi, Vietnam

With the support of the U.S. Department of State, the second regional regulatory workshop provided an interactive platform for Lower Mekong participants to address issues including: moving towards cost-reflective tariffs, harmonization of regional interconnection standards, introduction of competitive markets and cross-border trade, and network system operation and grid code. Two NARUC member experts participated in the workshop.

NARUC’s regional regulatory workshop supported the Energy Pillar of the Lower Mekong Initiative (LMI), providing a platform for national energy regulators and those performing regulatory functions to better coordinate on energy regulatory issues in order to facilitate cross-border trade and regional market development, spur clean energy development, and enhance energy security.
