Thursday, October 11, 2018
His Excellency Dr. Matar Hamed Al Neyadi, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Energy and Industry, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the 24th World Energy Congress, launched yesterday in Milan the registration link for the World Energy Conference, which will be held in Abu Dhabi in September 2019, in conjunction with the World Energy Week in Milan.
President Kim, HE Sheikh Nawaf Al Khalifa, Chairman of the Gulf Electricity Interconnection Authority, and H.E Fatima Al Foora Al Shamsi, the Assistant Undersecretary for Electricity and Future Energy at the Ministry of Energy and Industry and the Executive Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the Conference, have all witnessed this launching of the link during the annual meeting of the Executive Council of the World Energy Council in Milan yesterday.
It is worth mentioning that the UAE has won the hosting of the 24th edition of the conference, which is the longest of its kind for more than 95 years. A global dialogue platform brings together leaders of countries, Ministers, industry leaders, think tanks, interested citizens and NGOs from all over the world to discuss the latest developments in the energy sector and the challenges it faces. It also enriches participants' knowledge of better understanding of energy issues and solutions from a global perspective.
Since the announcement of Abu Dhabi hosting of the conference, the Organizing Committee has invested its full potential so that the 24th session would be the most effective and diverse conference ever. For this purpose, it has unveiled strategic partnerships with a variety of industry leaders, including the hosting of the top 100 energy innovators, and the showcase of young talents and competencies in collaboration with the German Energy Agency.
This is the first time the conference will be hosted in a city in the Middle East. UAE will be the first country in OPEC and the first Arab country to host this conference throughout its 95-year history.
