LAHORE: Punjab Minister for Mines and Mineral Chaudhry Sher Ali Khan said that the Punjab government is endeavoring to improve the situation of energy and water through mega projects by utilising all available resources.

He said this while speaking as chief guest at the two-day exhibition ‘All Pakistan DICE Energy and Water 2016’.

He added that the industry suffered due to shortage of energy and its increasing demand was also a major challenge for the government.

Kahan said that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was a great blessing for Pakistan to overcome the energy crisis. All stakeholders particularly academia should come forward to provide the technical assistance to energy and water concerned public offices.

Varsity VC Prof Dr Fazal Ahmad Khalid said that industry and agriculture - the major segments of progress - were completely dependent on energy and water, which are the core needs for development.
