Govt to start wind and solar projects to help produce 7000 MW of electricity
The government is planning to start solar and wind power projects in an attempt to produce 7000 megawatts (MW) of electricity.
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif made the announcement during a meeting with the delegation of Pak America Business Forum. He said that the coalition government took charge during a crucial time. Moreover, the government had to take some very hard decisions to make an ‘economic recovery.’
Shifting towards renewable energy sources
PM told the delegation that Pakistan aims at reducing power generation by fuels and instead, shift toward renewable energy sources. The government is taking measures to initiate wind and solar power projects to generate about 6000-7000 MW of electricity.
This would help reduce the imports of the country because a large portion of the import bill is due to fuels. Talking more about steps the government took to stabilize the economy, PM said that they imposed a ban on not only luxury items but also reduced expenditures.
The Pak America Business Forum thanked the PM for resolving the problems faced by Pakistanis abroad. They also admired the efforts done by PM to bring economical stability.
The delegation provided recommendations on how to resolve their issues. PM Sharif assured them that their problems will be solved as early as possible.
The delegation included the President of Pak America Business Forum, Riaz Khan, Senior Vice President Anwar Azam, Secretory General Waqar Khan, Federal Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Murtaza Javed Abbasi, and others.
