20 years ago, people said that Algeria was going to collapse. This country positively evolved. There was no single interruption of energy supply from Algeria to Europe all this time. The investments even increased. So let’s not scare too much investors.
The only way we can survive is to deliver energy to the lowest possible price. We in Saudi Arabia have significant renewable resources both wind and solar and they are already on a good way. We are with Dii to make that development faster.
In EU we are on a crossroad, if we get more union respective energy supply or if we fall back in totally self-contained countries. I strongly vote for a United EU based on renewable energies with strong relationship with our neighbors.
