Imran Khan in his letter to the Saudi Crown Prince said:
“The two initiatives which, inter alia include: plantation of 10 billion trees in the Kingdom and its further up scaling to 50 billion in the region as part of the Green Middle East Initiative; expansion of protested areas to more than 30 percent; protection of Marine and Coastal Environments and generation of 50 percent of the Kingdom’s energy from renewables by 2030, are highly commendable.
The vision of Your Royal Highness closely aligns with our own “Clean and Green Pakistan” initiative, which is investing in nature based solutions to address Climate Change impacts in the country.
We are also committed to shifting our energy’ mix towards a clean and low carbon trajectory. Like the Kingdom’s vision, we are targeting 60 percent of our energy to be clean energy by 2030, which will require a major expansion of solar, wind and hydro power generation capacity in the country.
Pakistan cherishes its cordial and brotherly relations with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and we would like to extend our support for Your Royal Highness’s excellent “Green” initiatives.”
