This report provides information on the status of recent electricity and petroleum product prices as well as time trends in a number of countries. It is based on data collected through a direct survey in 1993 covering 16 Asian countries. The survey focuses on electricity tariffs, petroleum product prices, and, when applicable, natural gas. The report covers average electricity rates by customer category and in the aggregate for the various fiscal years. It also gives prices paid by typical customers on January first of each year. The report is organized in three parts. Part I provides a summary of the main findings of the survey. Part II provides detailed data of electricity tariffs, notably time series in local currencies (current and constant) and US dollar (constant), while Part III provides similar data for petroleum products and natural gas.
