The promotion of the renewable energy sector was at the center of Moroccan-Emirati talks which took place Monday in Abu Dhabi, on the sidelines of the 13th session of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
During these discussions, Member of the Bureau of the House of Representatives and Secretary of the House, Tarik Kadiri and Chairman of the Energy Committee of the Federal National Council of the United Arab Emirates, Mohammad bin Issa Obaid Kashf Al Ali, reviewed aspects of cooperation between the two legislative institutions.
On this occasion, Kadiri highlighted the distinguished parliamentary relations existing between the House of Representatives and the Federal National Council, noting that these relations reflect the strength and depth of the distinguished political ties between the Kingdom of Morocco and the United Arab Emirates.
He also praised the international leadership of Morocco and the United Arab Emirates in the field of renewable energies, as evidenced by the advanced position occupied by the two countries in the field of energy transition.
In this regard, Kadiri expressed the willingness of the House of Representatives to strengthen coordination between the two commissions of the two legislative institutions concerned with energy, to exchange legislative expertise in this field and to benefit from the best experiences.
In this regard, he recalled the proposals presented by the House of Representatives during the IRENA Legislators’ Forum, in particular the creation of an international parliamentary forum on energy transition and the establishment of permanent parliamentary committees at regional and international parliamentary institutions and organizations at the Arab level, such as the Arab Parliament, the Arab Parliamentary Union and the Union of Councils of Member States of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
Kadiri represented Morocco at the IRENA General Assembly, which was attended by ministers and high-level government figures, including former US Secretary of State John Kerry, representatives of the private sector, institutions of civil society, international organizations and decision makers in the field of energy.
