PM pledges early completion of reforms process in power sector


Islamabad: Sep 19, 2020 (TNS): Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the incumbent government is committed for early completion of the reforms process in power sector aimed at providing low-priced and uninterrupted power supply to the people.

He was presiding over a review meeting in Islamabad on the ongoing reforms process for supply of low-cost and uninterrupted electricity to the consumers.

The Prime Minister said the country cannot meet the potential of economic development as reforms in power sector, considering the modern trends and growing domestic and industrial needs, were neglected in the past.

International energy and economics experts including Dr Robin Burgess from London School of Economics and Professor Michael Greenstone of Chicago University also joined the meeting through video link.

The meeting discussed in detail the roadmap for power sector reforms with a particular focus on supply of inexpensive and undisturbed electricity to the consumers.

The Prime Minister lauded the proposals from the experts and assured government’s all out support for inter-ministerial consultation and research on implementation mechanism of the reforms.
