A positive initiative by the Government to sign a recent MOU between PPIB, Ministry of Water & Power and Arab National Construction to construct 660MW coal-based power project in Gaddani is highly appreciative. In the wake of approaching summers, the availability and the cost of energy is perhaps the most important concern of every Pakistani. For future, adequate energy supply is crucial to keep the economic ball rolling. Government’s initiative in this regard is highly commendable. Besides, hydro-power projects, it is giving due importance to tap coal reservoirs and hence focusing more to utilize indigenous resources to enhance power production.

It is encouraging to note that our Government is making some concrete efforts to counter the nuisance of load-shedding and has adopted a multipronged strategy. We Pakistanis are keeping our fingers crossed and wishing our government to do their best in this regard.
