The industrial production value in July was estimated at VND50.8 trillion, raising the total value in the first seven months of the year to over VND325.9 trillion, up 17 percent from a year earlier, according to the Ministry of Industry.
The ministry said that the production of steel was 29.8 percent up over the same period last year; electric fans (25.5 percent), air conditioners (56.9 percent) and automobiles (67.2 percent).
In July, even though the Nam Con Son gas pipeline was out of service for maintenance and upgrade, the electricity sector met the demands of daily production and domestic use.
The coal industry turned out 24.2 million tonnes of clean coal in the past seven months, a 14.9 percent year-on-year rise, to which the Vietnam Coal and Mineral Industries Group contributed 23.8 million tonnes. (CPV/VOVNEWS)
