During the meeting were discussed a number of issues concerning the development of energy efficiency in industry.

They also agreed to hold a joint forum in late spring with the State Agency for Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine, UNIDO and UNECE to encourage industrial enterprises to introduce energy management systems, as well as “clean” energy.
