Iran to up power export to Pakistan
Country to increase export to 85 megawatts in new agreement
Pakistan will import a further 50 megawatts of power from Iran, in a new agreement expected to be signed this week.
Since 2003 Iran has supplied Pakistan with 35 megawatts of exported energy, and this latest agreement to supply 85 megawatts comes after a period of intense growth in the country.
The original agreement allowed the Makran district of Pakistan to meet demand only briefly, with requirement for power now causing setbacks to agriculture and business in the region. The new agreement is pending the agreement of Iranian officials.
