Government is holding a closed door consultative meeting with the Chamber of Mines and all the mining companies on the proposed electricity tariffs increase.
Ministers of Finance, Mines and Energy are representing the government at the meeting in Kitwe.
ZESCO has proposed to increase electricity tariffs for bulk users, a move which has not settled well with the mining Companies.
And Minister of Mines Christopher Yaluma says government wants to sell its rationale behind the proposed increase to all stakeholders in the mining sector.
Mr Yaluma said government also wants to hear and address concerns being raised by the stakeholders in the mining sector.
The Minister is expected to issue a statement at the end of the closed door consultative meeting.
There have been calls from various stakeholders on the need to review tariffs for bulk users in the Country so that they pay competitive prices for the power they consume.
