Decreasing Pakistan’s Energy Deficit

In most areas of Pakistan, there are lots of sunny days which can make solar energy as the solution for Pakistan’s energy crisis as they don’t need fuel and cost to run the plant. But the biggest hurdle in this way is investment which can be overcome by providing foreign investment opportunities.

According to experts, the end of energy crisis will boost exports, employment and additional power production that can result in annually 2% increase in country’s GDP.

It is expected that more foreign investment will come to Pakistan as its recent market status has been changed to the ‘emerging market’.
