ISLAMABAD: In a high-level meeting on Friday, Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif in Islamabad gave final touches to the new energy policy, Radio Pakistan reported.
Nawaz Sharif said that the new energy policy will turn out to be panacea to energy crisis confronting the country.
Speaking about the people and the national economy having suffered badly due to crippling power crisis, he said that it is high time that prudent and consistent policies are implemented to help everyone come out of this morass.
The meeting briefly discussed the main features of the new energy policy.
