Afghan economic commission meets on private sector, prioritizes power supply

KABUL: Acting Deputy Prime Minister of the Afghan caretaker government Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar chaired a meeting to review issues related to the private sector amid continued increase in poverty and unemployment, Baradar’s office said on Sunday.

The Economic Commission headed by Baradar, “after a detailed discussion on all issues in which the private sector is ready to invest, prioritized power generation,” it wrote on the social media platform Twitter.

The office said the commission has instructed related departments to start work on assessing renovation of coal-fueled power generation in the capital Kabul and big cities in a bid to ensure power supply for the private sector.

The meeting required a comprehensive plan to be made on coal-fueled electricity generation in industrial parks or large cities.

War-torn Afghanistan has been suffering power shortages. The Central Asian country has imported electricity from neighboring countries including Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan.
