The secretary-general recalled there is growing demand from China for oil and natural gas imports.
Al-Loughani spoke at the 7th China-Arab Energy Cooperation Conference held in Haikou with the theme“Entering the golden era of China-Arab energy cooperation of quality and sustainability.” He said fossil fuels could contribute to a balanced shift in the diversification of energy resources towards those more environment-friendly and compatible with efforts to counter climate change.
