font size    

Bangladesh has got permission from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to set up a nuclear power plant to meet its growing demand of power, Energy and Power Adviser Tapan Chowdhury said on Sunday.

Bangladesh is among eight countries who got the permission of setting up nuclear power plants, Chowdhury told reporters.

The other countries which got the IAEA approval for setting up nuclear reactors include Indonesia, Malaysia, Egypt, Morocco and some small countries in central Asia.

Bangladesh is suffering from acute shortage of electricity. The country faces around 2,000 MW shortage of electricity every day and the shortage is being covered through load shedding of electricity.

Bangladesh has attempted to import electricity from India, Nepal and Bhutan, but finally abandoned the idea due to complicacies.
