Pakistan and Turkey have agreed to form a technical working group in the energy sector to chalk out ways for working together.
Secretary Water and Power Saifullah Chatta, who is currently in Ankara as the head of a three-member delegation, on Thursday met Secretary of the Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, Metin Kilci, who offered to help Pakistan in organising a road show to attract Turkish entrepreneurs by showcasing potential projects in the hydro, coal and renewable energy sector.
Mr Kilci informedthe minister that Turkey generated about $50 billion by privatising its power sector. He said that as a result of privatisation, the public sector is saving over $10bn a year. Similarly, line losses were also reduced substantially in the post-privatisation era, he added.
