‘It’s an honor to be present at the Africa Hydrogen Forum during the Rotterdam 2023 World Hydrogen Summit. It’s clear that serious investment is needed to achieve the SDGs in Africa and to accelerate the implementation of Agenda 2063. I firmly believe that private-sector development, economic cooperation and trade are the keys that will unlock inclusive prosperity and growth. Africa possesses valuable renewable energy sources and has great potential for green hydrogen production. Together, we can ensure that Africa makes full use of this enormous potential.’
