Irena expands permanent representation
Abu Dhabi, 10 days ago
The International Renewable Energy Agency (Irena) has added six permanent representatives from the Arab World, Africa, Europe and the Pacific to the global body recently.
The ambassadors from a diverse set of countries presented their credentials to Irena director-general Adnan Z Amin, said a statement.
They included Ihab Emam Hamouda, Ambassador for Egypt; Osman Moussa Darar, Ambassador for Djibouti; Ravindran Robin Nair, Ambassador for Fiji; Ahmed Yousif Mohamed Elsiddig, Ambassador for Sudan; Mr. Giorgio Starace, Ambassador for Italy and Dionyssios Zois, Ambassador for Greece.
The representatives join diplomats from the UAE and Germany appointed in November.
With this appointment, each country establishes a permanent representative to Irena, enabling member states to participate actively and continuously in the agency’s activities.
“The appointment of six permanent representatives to Irena from Africa, Europe, the Pacific and the Arab World showcases the growing importance of renewable energy worldwide and the global commitment to a sustainable energy future,” said Amin.
The appointments will promote year-round collaboration between the agency’s members and its secretariat on projects related to policy and technology development, as well as partnerships to support countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future. - TradeArabia News Service
