RIYADH, March 17, 2017
Opec secretary general Mohammad Sanusi Barkindo will attend the Opec-Russia energy dialogue, expected to be held in June, the organization said in a statement.
Barkindo has invited Dr Sun Xiansheng, secretary general of the Riyadh-based International Energy Forum (IEF) to attend the Opec-China energy dialogue, to be held in China in April, and the Opec-Russia energy dialogue as a guest of honour.
“It would be important that the IEF participate,” Barkindo said. “It is the essence of [the] IEF to bring all parties, producers and consumers, together … in the interest of sustainable stability in the oil industry and the global economy.”
“You have an important role to play,” he said. “It would be good if our joint cooperative efforts can [be made] manifest here.” – TradeArabia News Service
