The national grid of China will help Pakistan to build 4000 megawatts of transmission lines.
China's national grid will help build a 4,000-megawatt power transmission line in Pakistan, with a transmission line worth $ 1.5 billion.
According to the Pakistani government, 4,000 megawatts of transmission lines will be Pakistan's first type of power line connecting the southern Mertiari to eastern Lahore.
The agreement was signed in Beijing on December 30 by Mohammad Younus Dagha, Director General of Pakistan Water and Power, and Shu Yinbiao, General Manager of China National Grid.
Over the years, Pakistan has been plagued by power shortages, and rural and urban areas are facing widespread power outages.
The transmission line project is the latest in a series of Chinese investments in Pakistan. These investments are mostly based on the proposed $ 55 billion CMB economic corridor.
