Addressing a seminar titled “CPEC and Trade & Investment Opportunities in Pakistan” at the China International Petroleum & Petrochemical Technology and Equipment Exhibition (CIPPE), Aslam Chaudhary said that the energy sector emerges as a key area for investment with the government’s focus on renewable energy sources.

Pakistan has vast untapped potential in hydropower, wind, and solar energy, presenting lucrative investment opportunities, he added.

“Last year our government announced an alternate energy policy under which we have a projection that by the year 2030, 60% of the energy mix would be from green and renewable energy sources. Currently, we have 33%,” he stated.
