Summit Overview

Energy is a critical factor in all the sectors of any economy. It plays the most vital role in the achievement of economic progress, including poverty eradication and security. The standard of living of a given country can also be directly related to the level of its per capita energy consumption. Future economic growth crucially depends on the long-term availability of energy from sources that are affordable, accessible, and environmentally friendly.
