Kathmandu, Feb 22: The talks between the officials of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) and Bangladesh Power Development Board (PBDB) have been positive on power trade deal.

As agreed between NEA and PBDB, Nepal would export electricity to Bangladesh from coming rainy season.

The talks were held between the NEA Managing Director Kulman Ghising led team and PBDP’s Tender Evaluation Committee in Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh.

Ghising said that a final agreement would be done soon by giving a final touch to every point to be included in the power trade deal.

“They are supposed to take approval from the higher authority. Consensus has been made to purchase electricity from Nepal from coming rainy season by completing the approval and other processes at the earliest possible time,” Ghising added. #Nepal
