Energy – Strategic Partnership
UAE President Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and French President Emmanuel Macron witnessed the signing of two major energy agreements in Paris.
The 1st is a comprehensive strategic energy partnership between the UAE and France, and the 2nd is a strategic partnership agreement between Adnoc and TotalEnergies.
The CSEP focuses on enhancing energy security, affordability and decarbonisation, and progressive climate action before Cop28, which is set to take place in the UAE in November 2023.
The landmark partnership builds on the strong, close and long-standing relations between both countries and leverages the UAE’s position as a responsible and reliable supplier of energy.
The agreement was signed by Dr Sultan Al Jaber, UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, managing director and group chief executive of Adnoc, and chairman of Masdar; Bruno Le Maire, French Minister of Economy, Finance, and Industrial and Digital Sovereignty; and Agnes Pannier-Runacher, French Minister of Energy Transition.
