In a directive issued on Thursday, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif emphasized that the government will use all available means to rescue the nation while directing the relevant authorities to carry out the recommendations made in the national energy conservation plan within the specified time frame.
A review meeting on the execution of the energy-saving plan was presided over by the PM.
The meeting was updated on how the solar projects were doing. The PM was informed by officials that 1,000 megawatts worth of solar panels would initially be placed at federal facilities.
The bidding in this case would start the following week. The local policy-making process for the manufacture of solar panels had reached its conclusion, and discussions with the industry about solar panel production were finished.
The meeting was also informed that the local industry had been given the go-ahead to develop a complete policy to expand the manufacture of E-bikes and that, by the end of the current year, all new gas geysers would be equipped with conical baffles.
Christian Turner, the departing British High Commissioner, visited Prime Minister Shehbaz at the Prime Minister’s House before their meeting.
According to Prime Minister Shehbaz, there is a long history of good people-to-people ties between Pakistan and the UK.
According to him, Pakistan’s top trading, investment, and development partner in Europe is the United Kingdom.
“The trajectory of the bilateral relations between our two countries showed the immense potential for growth for the benefit of the two countries.”
