Today, Monday, the Ministry of Electricity revealed the latest developments regarding the Gulf interconnection project, and the extent of its impact on changing the current government, while confirming the start of the five-year plan project prepared by it to develop energy in the country.
The ministry’s spokesman, Ahmed Moussa, told the National News Center, “The ministry signed a strategic agreement that is not related to a specific government, but rather is a continuation of the ministry’s efforts to diversify sources of electrical energy. Therefore, the Gulf interconnection project was not linked to the fate of any government. It will not be affected by the formation of the House of Representatives and the next government at all.”
And he indicated that "such projects are considered an approved or political plan for the ministry through which it contracts with countries in order to improve energy and diversify its sources, in addition to that these projects are a strategy far from the work of the prime minister."
Moussa stressed, "The ministry has started to activate its five-year plan, which requires adding new generating capacities, as well as relieving bottlenecks in transmission lines, as well as introducing some transformational stations, with three short, long and medium terms."
He explained that "the five-year medium-term plan has been decided upon in all Iraqi provinces, in preparation for the summer of 2022, and this plan will greatly improve the reality of the electric current in the country."
