Francesco La Camera, Director General of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)
Unfortunately, I have not yet had the opportunity to visit the exhibition, because I just arrived and immediately took part in the forum. Therefore, I can appreciate the organization of this event, and would like to note that we are very satisfied, everything is organized perfectly, and everything went smoothly and well. The forum is very important at facilitating communication with ministers from the countries of the region, including your minister. Today we met with him. From this point of view, we can call our participation in the event fruitful.
I managed to take part in one of the panels, where a very right question was asked: how are we going to meet the future, how will the energy transition be implemented. I think that the topic was carefully thought out and correctly chosen.
As for our expectations: IRENA is not an oil and gas company, we work with renewable energy sources, which is becoming more and more important every day, however we are ready to cooperate with all companies.
Again, this forum is significant for us in terms of the opportunity to meet with ministers from the countries of the region and discuss how we can build a strategy for cooperation between their countries and the agency. And all these aspects together make me think that it was worth coming here.
