Jaipal Reddy calls for international cooperation to meet global energy security callenges

Doha, Wed, 07 Dec 2011 ANI

Doha, Dec 7(ANI): India has called for intensifying global efforts for realization of sustainable global energy order for all.


Addressing the 20th World Petroleum Congress at Doha, Qatar, Union Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas Jaipal Reddy said that in the past countries focused on energy independence and more recently, on energy security and if we have to evolve energy solutions for all, it is a forward movement.


The Minister said it also releases us from looking at energy from a security perspective which can bring a sense of isolation as opposed to a cooperative approach required for evolving solutions.


"Today, as I speak before the experts and elites of the global petroleum industry on Multi-Sectoral Cooperation and a Sustainable Energy Industry, I am reminded of "Sarvodaya," an ideal of Mahatma Gandhi, and key to some of the landmark development initiatives in South Asia. The term "Sarvodaya" means "the uplift of all"," he said.


"As the petroleum minister of India, I am entrusted with the task to uplift one sixth of the global population in energy matters, and to address the energy requirements of a growing economy. Standing here amidst you, I think that the extension of my task on the global scale amounts to realization of sustainable global energy order for all."


"We have witnessed the structure and dynamics of the petroleum market determining the contours of development. Realizing the Millennium Development Goals will remain elusive unless energy, a fundamental input for development, comes with sustainability and equity," he added. (ANI)
