Central Asian nations are working together on electricity issues. The fourth session of the Coordination Council on Power Industry of Central Asia was recently concluded. The first deputy chairman and chief engineer of the Tajik electricity company said the heads of electricity companies from the member states, including Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan took part in the session. According to him, during the session an agreement was reached between Turkmenistan and Tajikistan.

Turkmenistan will supply Tajikistan with about 1 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity annually until 2010. The issue of electricity supply from Uzbekistan has not been resolved. However, nearly 600 million kilowatt-hours could be sent from Uzbekistan to Tajikistan in the near future.
