Nepal to provide 40-50mw electricity to Bangladesh: envoy

Nepal will initially send 40-50 MW electricity to Bangladesh but promised to supply more after a big power project being implemented in the Himalayan nation will be completed, newly appointed Nepalese Ambassador Ghanshyam Bhandari said on Tuesday.

PM’s press secretary Ihsanul Karim told reporters that the diplomat made the comment when he met Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her official residence-Ganabhaban on Tuesday, reports UNB.

The Nepalese envoy said that his country is currently implementing a mega power plant project.

“After completing that project Nepal will be able to export more electricity to Bangladesh,” Karim quoted the Ambassador as saying.
