For over fifty years, OAPEC has represented the interests of the top 11 leading Arab oil-exporting nations. At the 24th World Energy Congress, OAPEC will emphasise cooperation among its oil exporting members. OAPEC is also focused on further establishing international relations to help cultivate new innovations and technological developments within the energy industry.
The collaboration between the 2019 Congress and OAPEC is another step towards the congress reaching its goal of tackling global energy challenges and furthering the energy debate. By bringing together energy leaders from across the Middle East and North Africa alongside global stakeholders, the congress will be an opportunity to address the key issues affecting the entire energy spectrum.
Dr Matar Al Neyadi, undersecretary at the UAE Ministry of Energy and Industry, and chairman of the UAE Organising Committee for the 24th World Energy Congress, said: “It will be an honour to welcome OAPEC at the 24th World Energy Congress as they take their place as one of our most valuable exhibitors.”
“Working with them, we look forward to addressing the critical role stability and global investment can have in achieving future global energy prosperity. OAPEC’s exhibition stand will showcase Abu Dhabi and the UAE, positioning it at the epicentre of the global energy industry,” added Dr Al Neyadi.
“Alongside OAPEC and our partners, we are excited by the standard of exhibitors and contributors we have already revealed, and look forward to announcing further supporters as we progress towards next year’s Congress.”
Abbas Ali Al-Naqi, secretary general of OAPEC, said: “OAPEC is delighted to be part of the 24th World Energy Congress, bringing Arab energy leaders and experts to Abu Dhabi next September.”
The 24th World Energy Congress will be the longest-running and most influential energy gathering in the world. The four-day event will allow public and private actors from across the entire energy spectrum to showcase the world’s most innovative initiatives to drive global energy transition. Under the theme ‘Energy for Prosperity’, the congress will bring together 2,500 exhibitors, 500 CEOs, 70 ministers, and 4,000 delegates from across the world to pioneer new ways of thinking and crystalise action around energy to deliver an equitable and sustainable future.
