Punjab Minister for Energy Sher Ali Khan has said the government believes that nothing can be more important than solution to energy crisis.

The Punjab government was also encouraging foreign investment in the energy sector, the minister said after inaugurating the second session of the ‘Energy, Gas, Oil and Power Exhibition and Conference’ – EGO Pakistan 2013 – at the Expo Centre here on Thursday.

The minister visited various stalls at the exhibition to meet the representatives of different companies and energy sector experts and appreciated their efforts in this regard.

With specific focus on unexplored energy potential in Pakistan and future prospects for regional development, the three-day exhibition and conference has been arranged by FAKT Exhibitions to bring leading global energy companies under one roof, creating a platform to establish strategic alliances.

Besides local companies, senior government officials and representatives of different business organisations and delegates of major companies from the US, UK, China, Canada, Japan, Iran, India, Malaysia, Germany, Italy, France and The Netherlands are attending the event.

Apart from the conventional energy sources, the exhibition capitalises on the non-conventional, renewable sources like wind, solar, biomass and coal power. Showing latest technologies in oil and gas exploration, energy conservation and alternate energy, the event is expected to bring huge foreign investment in local energy sector.

“EGO Pakistan attracts energy experts from different parts of the world to discuss innovation, technology and investments, required to unleash the potential of energy industry, said FAKT CEO Saleem Khan Tanoli.
