Facilitating growth: US extends support to energy sector

United States (US) Ambassador Richard Olson has stated that the country will broaden its ties with Pakistan by extending cooperation in the energy sector and build better business relations.

The US ambassador made a trip along with the Minister of Water and Power Khawaja Muhammad Asif and the Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to Washington and Houston to attend meetings for Pakistan-US Energy Working Group.

Olson said that the US has been advocating the idea of connecting South Asia with Central Asia and is currently working on the New Silk route. The meetings served a broader agenda of building business to contacts and ‘privatization of US-Pakistan ties’, discussed plans to bring LNG to Pakistan and increase cooperation in the hydel sector by exploring Pakistan’s indigenous energy resources, particularly shale gas.
