The Minister of Energy, Mr John Peter Amewu, is leading a delegation from the Ministry and the Energy Commission to the ninth session of the Assembly of International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).

The meeting is slated for January 10-13 at the St. Regis Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Mr Amewu is expected to deliver an address on the topic: “Scaling Up of Renewable Energy Development in Africa” during the African Ministerial Roundtable.

This was contained in a statement issued and signed by Nana Kofi Oppong-Damoah, Head of Communications and Public Affairs of the Ministry in Accra, on Thursday.

The IRENA is an intergovernmental organization that supports countries in their transition to a sustainable energy future, and served 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 Assembly is the Agency’s supreme decision-making body and brings together Heads of State, Ministers, government officials and representatives from the private sector, civil society organizations and other international organization to re-affirm the global renewable energy agenda and make concrete steps to accelerate the global energy transition.

The delegation accompanying the Minister include Dr. A.K Ofosu-Ahenkorah, Executive Secretary of the Energy Commission, Mr Wisdom Ahiataku-Togobo, Director in charge of Renewable and Alternative Energies at the Energy Ministry and Nana Kofi Oppong-Damoah, Head of Communications and Public Affairs at the Energy Ministry

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
