‘Importing power from India may be better than production’

BANGLADESH: Electricity import from India is an economic option for Bangladesh as it is cheaper than all the other options including coal fired power plants, says a report.

The report, published on Monday, said that importing of power will need less domestic power generation capacity. The money which was supposed to be invested in improving power generation capacity and fuel infrastructure development thus can be used for the development of non-energy sectors like agriculture, manufacturing or for consumption expenses.
