HCMC – The government of Kien Giang Province in the Mekong Delta region has asked the Ministry of Industry and Trade for help with urgent supply of over 73,000 cubic meters of fuels.
The office of the provincial government said on October 11 that Kien Giang proposed the ministry ask wholesalers to urgently provide the province with 36,780 cubic meters of gasoline and 36,780 cubic meters of other oil products.
The proposal is aimed at ensuring fuel supplies are not disrupted in the province to serve enterprises’ production and business and residents’ daily activities, the local media reported.
The province has 608 gas stations and 23 distributors, according to the provincial Department of Industry and Trade.
Over the past few days, many gas stations in the province have shut down as they ran out of stock, making life hard for production and daily activities and worrying residents. More seriously, gas station closures are on the rise.
If there are no prompt supplies of fuels, firms’ production and business and residents’ daily activities will be affected heavily.
