Pakistan seeks Danish role in energy efficiency

Islamabad: Climate Ambassador at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark Tomas Anker Christensen called on Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam and expressed interest to learn from Pakistan’s various green initiatives launched under Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision for Clean Green and climate-resilient Pakistan.

“The exchange of views focused on bilateral cooperation and joint working for the Danish government’s interest for implementation of West-to-Energy and Renewable Energy projects to support the Prime Minister Imran Khan government’s climate action agenda,” the PM’s aide Malik Amin said in his media statement.

However, the Danish government has decided to solidify, substantiate and strengthen our bilateral ties following the progress already delivered by increased trade between Pakistan and Denmark and within the current scope of EU GSP+ status and the EU strategic engagement plan with Pakistan, Climate Ambassador Tomas Anker Christensen.

He highlighted, “Our increased joint working under the green framework engagement is chiefly underpinned by our mutual interests, high ambitions and shared visions in a green and sustainable future for the planet including through private sector engagement and public-private partnerships.”

“Now my country’s main thrust of future engagement is, besides others, the energy-efficiency and green transition as well as climate change mitigation and adaptation in various socio-economic and environmental sectors as a part of the global climate action,” he added further.
