Saudi Arabia Highlights Strong Energy Bonds with Asia
From Arab News
Ali Al-Naimi, minister of petroleum and mineral resources, has called on policy makers and energy companies to take a long-term view that places economic development and rising living standards before short-term profits.
He was speaking at the 5th Asian Ministerial Energy Roundtable in South Korea. The main topics at the event in Seoul included Asia growth and energy outlook.
The following are excerpts from the minister’s remarks:
“I would like to thank the International Energy Forum for inviting me to attend this important gathering, and for the government of South Korea for being such a generous host.
“It is a vital opportunity for Asian nations to promote dialogue between oil producing and consuming nations in Asia and, as such, is rightly seen as a key international meeting.
Saudi Arabia has forged particularly close energy bonds with Asian nations over the past decades.
