According to the presidential envoy who is the special adviser on media and publicity, the meeting was a continuation of a first talk with BURN Manufacturing a few weeks ago.

He stated that as clean cooking becomes a national priority, not only as a source of revenue but also as a vital stage of action in the fair transition, businesses will be encouraged with clean-finance incentives to enable our people to produce sustainable solutions for future.

Ngelale also said that he met with the Brazilian Head of Embassy, Joao Soares, and discussed current and future potential in climate action and green industrialization.

“As Africa’s and South America’s most populous nations, the two countries stand as critically important allies in the global south, and will need to deepen industrial and other forms of collaboration to advance climate justice and ensure new economic opportunity for our fast-growing populations,” the special envoy stated.
