Imports likely needed as Vietnam’s ethanol sector won’t be ready for E5 by year’s end

As a result, imports may be required during the short-term to compensate for the lack of domestic availability until the facilities are re-commissioned. Though the government is phasing out RON 92, leaving just RON 95 and E5 on the market, one oil major expects about half of consumers to switch to E5.
