SAARC countries recently decided to generate energy via sugar cane factories while developing the sugar cane industry, he said.

"We can generate eco - friendly energy via sugar cane factories and I discussed this project with the Power and Energy Ministry Secretary. He said we will be able to generate 26 mega watts as a by-product of the sugar cane factories. Arrangements are now in place to establish 20 new sugar cane factories and generate eco - friendly energy for the country's development, " the minister said.
