Economy Minister Abdul Sattar Murrad said the government plans construct hydroelectric dams around the country to expand power generation inside the country.

Currently, Afghanistan imports electricity from neighboring countries at a cost of USD 200mn on an annual basis.

Afghanistan is capable of generating 23,000 megawatts of electricity from domestic sources.

The nation requires 25,000 megawatts of electricity.

According to Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS) officials, Afghanistan would be able to meet its electricity demands as well as export electricity abroad by construction of three new hydroelectric dams.
