FIJI is participating in the 4th International Renewable Energy Agency Assembly in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

And the Fiji delegation to the international meet is led by Minister for Works, Transport and Public Utilities Timoci Natuva.

An Information Ministry statement released yesterday said IRENA promotes the widespread adoption of renewable energy towards sustainable development.

IRENA was inaugurated in 2011, and it is the first global intergovernmental organisation with its headquarters in the Middle East.

The intergovernmental arm supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy and serves as the principal platform for international co-operation, a centre of excellence, and a repository of policy, technology, resource and financial knowledge on renewable energy.

The minister is accompanied by senior government officials including Ambassador Robin Nair, the permanent secretary for Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation, Amena Yauvoli, the permanent secretary of Strategic Planning and National Development Pita Wise and the director of Energy, Peceli Nakavulevu.
