ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan government and a Chinese company signed an agreement on Tuesday to build a 300-megawatt coal fired power plant in Gwadar.
The project will be established under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
The agreement to this effect was signed between Private Power and Infrastructure Board and China Communications Construction Company.
