The Prime Minister emphasised at the occasion that India is the best country in which to invest in the energy sector. "The future of the globe in the twenty-first century is heavily influenced by the energy sector. India is currently one of the loudest voices in the development of new energy sources and the energy transition. The country, which is likewise on track to become a developed country, has hitherto unheard-of opportunities in the energy industry " he said.
