The approval came from the weekly Ecnec meeting held on Thursday at the NEC conference room with Ecnec Chairperson and Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina, in the chair. Planning Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal, while briefing the press after the meeting, said: "A total of 19 projects were placed at the meeting, but Ecnec approved 17 projects," reported UNB. He said the overall estimated cost of the 17 approved projects is Tk14,200.59 crore. Of the 17 projects, 14 are new and the remaining three are revised ones. The Ecnec meeting also sent back another project called “Mollarhat 100-Megawatt Solar PV Power Plant” to recast it.
