IEA, nonmember countries seek cooperation

The International Energy Agency, a 1974 offshoot of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, said it has agreed to pursue closer cooperation with Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, and South Africa. The OECD represents industrialized nations.

In a statement from an IEA ministerial meeting in which the nonmember countries participated, IEA said the aim is to start multilateral cooperation to build on bilateral programs it has developed with what it calls “partner countries.”

It said the effort reflects “common understanding that global energy challenges and energy security require shared solutions by producer, consumer, and transit countries.”
