Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan
"Kazakhstan gov-nt set an ambitious goal to switch to 50% of renewable energy by 2050. And this goal has nothing to do with oil prices. We began developing "green economy" when oil cost USD 120 a barrel, we're doing it now when the price is USD 47 a barrel and we're not going to quit if the price drops by USD 20 a barrel. We do this for the future. This is our contribution into change in our lives, lives of our children and all the next generations", – said the Minister.
