AU plans to light up Africa
Speaking on Wednesday in Tripoli during the opening session of the international conference on energy and development, Zouia said that AU had set up a committee in charge of electric energy and that efforts were currently being employed to promote the production of that energy in the Africa’s remotest areas.
He called on participants at the meeting and international companies to look into the possibility of developing oil production in Africa in collaboration with the League of African Oil-Producing Countries.
Zouia reviewed the financing programmes for oil projects in Africa, as well as ways to consolidate co-operation between South American and African countries in this field.
He recalled that the first Africa-South America summit, held recently in Nigeria, gave priority to
partnership between the two continents in the field of the harnessing energy sources to meet Africa's energy requirements. -panapress
