Indonesia's state-owned electricity firm PT Perusahaan Listrict Negara (PLN) plans to give assistance to Myanmar to decline the losses of its electricity power, a top official of the firm said here on Wednesday.

President Director of PLN Nur Pamudji said that the assistance would be in the form of a technical consultation assistance to the country.

The government of Myanmar has suffered electrical power losses by up to 26 percent.

"The Indonesian government offers a technical assistance on the electricity sector to the government of Myanmar who is facing electrical power losses by up to 26 percent," he said at the PLN headquarters.

Indonesia only suffered electrical power losses by up to 9.2 percent.

The president director said that his firm would send five to 10 people to Myanmar to assess the problem being faced by Myanmar and to observe way of management of the sector.

Pamudji said that Indonesia offered to make an effort to help Myanmar reduce the losses to below 20 percent.

"We try to offer the reduction of losses to less than 20 percent," he added.

Pamudji said that the target was made on the basis of the achievement of developed countries in reducing their electricity power losses, such as France which has declined electricity power to 6 percent.
