BAZAR: CASA-1000 And Its Benefits For Afghanistan
The implementation of the CASA-1000 power project will accelerate the implementation of big projects and play a role towards promoting a better security situation in the countries of the region, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS) officials said.
DABS head, Amanullah Ghalib, said by the implementation of the project, Afghanistan will not only receive money for power transmission but make it possible for the country to buy electricity at a lower cost. The project will help Afghanistan expand its transit and trade ties with the region’s countries.
The CASA-1000 project will start at Kyrgyzstan and reach Afghanistan through Tajikistan and onward to Pakistan’s Peshawar city. The length of the project in Afghanistan is estimated to eventually run for 562km.
