Third Summit of OCT Energy Ministers
The Overseas Countries and Territories of the European Union are scattered around the globe from the poles to the tropics in areas where there is an abundance of natural energy sources such as wind, solar, thermal and marine. This enables the OCTs to position themselves as centres of excellence in the field of sustainable energy.
At this third Summit on 7th of December 2017, the OCT Energy Ministers will be able to actively participate with EU policy makers, the private sector, and other stakeholders in panel discussions on the most appropriate actions to support their transition towards a sustainable energy future.
This Summit is being organised by the Overseas Countries and Territories Association (OCTA).
Opening of the Summit:
- Honourable Goldray Ewing, Minister of Works of the Turks and Caicos Islands, OCTA Chairmanship
- MEP Maurice Ponga, Vice Chair of the EP’s Committee on Development
- MEP Tonino Picula, Chair of the islands subgroup – SEARICA Intergroup
