Within the framework of the visit Nawaz Sharif will attend the official launching ceremony of CASA-1000 project construction.

It should be noted that the new electricity transmission system to connect all four countries, called CASA-1000, will help make the most efficient use of clean hydropower resources in the Central Asian countries by enabling them to transfer and sell their electricity surplus during the summer months to the deficient countries in South Asia.

In addition, the CASA-1000 project would also complement the countries’ efforts to improve electricity access, integrate and expand markets to increase trade, as well as help find sustainable solutions in the field of water resources.
