ME energy experts set for Korea meet
Dubai, June 20, 2013
One hundred delegates from 44 countries, including four from the Middle East region will take part in the World Energy Congress, to be held in Korea, starting on October 13.
The five-day event is aimed at attracting some of the brightest young talent from across the world, said a statement from the organisers.
The World Energy Congress is held every three years and is set to launch its Future Energy Leaders Programme (Felp).
The Middle East delegates selected for Felp include Mohammed Al-Azba, research program manager at the Qatar Environment & Energy Research Institute; Abdulrahman Al Ghabban, consultant at the King Abdullah City for Atomic and Renewable Energy, Saudi Arabia; Michel-Ange Medlej, advisor to the Minister of Energy & Water, Lebanon; and Antoine Skayem, CEO of Free Renewable Electric Energy, Lebanon.
All participants are working in energy-related fields, including government, industry, finance, academia and NGOs, and were nominated as a Future Energy Leader by their home countries.
The group will contribute its unique insights to the programme, which has been developed under the overall theme of “Securing Tomorrow’s Energy Today”.
The event is being hosted by the World Energy Council, which consists of 93 national committees representing more than 3,000 member organisations and the WEC Daegu 2013 Organising Committee, which represents the Council’s Korean members. – TradeArabia News Service
