COLOMBO (NewsRadio); Minister of Power and Energy Kanchana Wijesekera is scheduled to address the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC) Ministerial Panel today (1).
Minister Wijesekera will be a part of the discussion on key policy considerations to deliver net zero ambitions in an uncertain time.
The Minister will be a part of a panel including the Deputy Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia Romeo Mikautadze, the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources of Turkey Faith Donmez, and Romania’s Minister of Energy Virgil Daniel Popescu.
Ministers will convene in Abu Dhabi to discuss how governments and private sectors must respond and recalibrate their reduced carbon and net-zero strategies.
Global oil executives and chiefs of national oil companies will also gather in Abu Dhabi to discuss their response to the energy crisis that has been exacerbated by years of underinvestment in the industry’s infrastructure worldwide and exacerbated this year by geopolitics.
