Statement of Lyonchhen Jigmi Y Thinley at the SAARC CCI conference on Climate change and energy cooperation in south Asia (Paro, Sunday 22nd April, 2012)
HE Mr. Patali Champika Ranawaka, Minister for power and Energy of Sri Lanka, Mr. Vikramjit
Singh Sahney, President, SAARC Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Hon’ble ministers, etc,
I am very honoured to be invited to this important event.
I find it particularly significant that a discourse on the mounting threats of climate change and the
compulsions for cooperation in the field of energy is being hosted by the SAARC Chamber of
commerce and Industry as opposed to these important subjects being left to governments as matters
of public and foreign policy.
