CASA-1000 to help end power outages: PM
ISLAMABAD: The Central Asia South Asia Electricity Transmission and Trade Project (CASA-1000) will help overcome power load-shedding in Pakistan, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Thursday. “The role of CASA-1000 is important in redressing the power shortages in Pakistan,” he said during a meeting with Kyrgyzstan’s Minister for Economy Kojoshev Arzybek Orozbekovich at the Prime Minister’s House. The premier said the project was moving satisfactorily and the recent meeting of Joint Working Group held in Dubai from Dec 5 to 8 took some important decisions which would ensure the project’s timely completion. CASA-1000 will put in place the contractual and institutional arrangements, and the transmission infrastructure, to facilitate the export of 1,300 megawatts of already available surplus electricity in the summer months from Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is believed that by enabling regional electricity trade and paving the way for other trade/transit infrastructure investments in the region, CASA-1000 will help alleviate poverty in some of the poorest parts of the world while enhancing energy security and regional stability.
