Minister Alex White attending Paris meeting of International Energy Agency

Minister for Energy Alex White will attend a ministerial meeting of the International Energy Agency (IEA) in Paris on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th November.

After consulting with the French Government and the OECD, the IEA decided to go ahead with the meeting as scheduled, saying that there were many important issues for energy ministers to discuss in advance of the COP21 international climate change conference, which begins in Paris later this month.

Minister White said: "The decision to go ahead with this important meeting of energy ministers from around the world offers an opportunity to demonstrate our solidarity with France."
