Load management to overcome shortage of gas & electricity
Oct '09
A high-level meeting has been convened by the Textile Ministry to deliberate on the contentious issue of shortage of gas and electricity in the coming winter season and evolve a comprehensive strategy for managing gas and electricity supply to the textile industry.

This meeting will be held on October 15 and will be chaired by the Minister of Textiles, Mr Rana M Farooq Saeed Khan. Delving details, the minister said, all stakeholders have been invited to participate in the meeting so as to devise a unanimous plan for load management.

He said that Pakistan was not the only country facing energy shortage and that, there are energy shortages in neighbouring countries as well, but they overcome these challenges by resorting to load management mechanism.

He added by saying, “This meeting envisages tackling the problem through load management mechanism, which would not only help provide relief to the industry, but would also ensure smooth production, since, otherwise exports, could get affected”.

The minister said that all efforts would be put in, to ensure that the textile industry is provided with a proper supply of gas and electricity to ensure smooth production.
