Indonesia and Pakistan can work together, especially in a program to enhance and maximize the use of solar energy to suppress dependence on fossil energy. The two countries can also strengthen international cooperation to drive the global energy transition. One of the exhibitors expressed his interest regarding Indonesia’s position as a producer of lithium for electric vehicle battery materials. They have requested time to visit KJRI Karachi for further information regarding this matter.
