For Immediate Release
U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan Richard Olson visited the Jamshoro Thermal Power Station (JTPS), which was recently upgraded with $19.3 million in U.S. assistance. The Jamshoro plant will now provide an additional 270 megawatts of power to the national grid, enough to provide electricity to nearly 4.3 million more Pakistanis. The visit of U.S. Ambassador Olson, U.S. Consul General in Karachi Michael Dodman, United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission Director Gregory Gottlieb, and other senior U.S. government officials to JTPS reaffirms the U.S. government's commitment to strengthening public-owned power sector entities. Sultan Zafar, CEO of Genco Holding Company Limited, Anwar Brohi, CEO of Jamshoro Power Company Limited, and other Government of Pakistan representatives toured JTPS with the U.S. delegation.
