Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy Gwede Mantashe believes energy is the catalyst for economic growth and development, and will help address challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality.
He was speaking at the second African Union Commission’s International Energy Agency ministerial forum under the theme, securing Africa’s energy future in the wake of Covid-19.
The IEA is working with the AU in ensuring capacity building for energy statistics as well as focusing on energy access.
Mantashe says through the African continental free trade agreement, Africa is beginning to structure itself as a continent of the future.
