Participants included representatives from the National Statistics Institutes, Ministries and Members of Parliament responsible for policy and decision making in the energy sector as well as media representatives.
During the conference, a series of presentations and key note speakers highlighted the importance that energy statistics play in the development of national energy strategies and how these contribute to a better investment climate, facilitate trade, and thus improve security of energy supply.
