No tariff hike imposed on electricity for industry: President

The government has no plans to increase the electricity tariff for the industry, but on the contrary, it might even decrease it, stated President Joko Widodo.

“The electricity tariff for the industry will not be increased, and it might even be cut down as some trillions can be saved by adopting measures to boost efficiency,” President Widodo said here on Monday.

President Widodo arrived in Lhokseumawe to officially inaugurate the operations of the gas receiving and regasification terminal by PT Perta Arun Gas.

During his remarks, the president expressed regret over the news reports spreading rumors that the government was planning to increase the industrial electricity tariff.
