Fadillah to deliver keynote address at London Climate Action Week

PUTRAJAYA: Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof will deliver a keynote address at the High-Level Dialogue on Coal Phase-Out during the 2024 London Climate Action Week at the invitation of the United Kingdom (UK) government next week.

The Energy Transition and Air Transformation Ministry announced in a statement on Saturday (June 22) that this will be part of Fadillah's official itinerary in the UK from June 23 to 27.

"Malaysia’s stance on ensuring that the energy transition is implemented fairly and equitably, including aspects of coal phasing-out, is important to highlight in international forums such as the London Climate Week.

"This is because the economic development needs of developing countries must also be considered in the global climate change and energy transition aspirations led by developed countries,” said the ministry.

Fadillah will also visit the Vantage RE PLC wind power plant project, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), and visit Wessex Water, a water and sewerage services company in Bath, West London, owned by YTL Power International Berhad.

He will also meet with the International Hydropower Association (IHA).

"While in the UK, the deputy prime minister is also scheduled to meet with the Malaysian diaspora in London to provide updates on national development initiatives, particularly on advancements in energy transition," said the ministry. – Bernama
