LA­HORE:

The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

The La­hore Cham­ber of Com­merce & In­dus­try has urged the gov­ern­ment to uti­lize max­i­mum re­sources to im­prove energy pro­duc­tion through coal and so­lar power projects.

LCCI Pres­i­dent Ijaz A. Mum­taz said that gov­ern­ment would have to spend suf­fi­cient amount of energy and re­sources for the pro­mo­tion al­ter­nate energy re­sources. He said that Punjab gov­ern­ment should re­struc­ture the min­ing sec­tor as lack of mod­ern tech­nol­ogy is com­ing in the way of fully ex­ploita­tion of coal min­ing. He urged the pri­vate sec­tor to come for­ward and in­vest in min­ing sec­tor that would be a great ser­vice to the coun­try. He said that to equip min­eral sec­tor with up-to-date tech­nol­ogy should be one of the top pri­or­i­ties of the gov­ern­ment. He said that mod­ern tech­nol­ogy would help full uti­liza­tion of do­mes­tic coal re­serves which have ad­di­tion quan­tity of sul­phur and ash. Ijaz A.
