WFES 2013 shines in the light of politics


During the opening ceremony, general Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces underlines that the world should not cease to take the increasing challenges in the fields of water, energy and food supply.

France’s president François Hollande stated in his speech that his country has not only taken strategic steps, but also invested extensively in renewable energies. These measures aim to reduce the prices of energy and allow the domestic economy to become more competitive.

For the first time, Argentina was represented at the WFES 2013 with a pavilion, strongly supported by its president Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. In Argentina, wind and geothermal energy already play a major role. These energies are essential in order to supply the growing population and agriculture, which is important for the country’s economy, with energy.

The WFES is the largest forum of its kind worldwide. It is characterized by the cooperation of politics, companies, associations and stakeholders trying to find solutions in ambitious workshops.
