United NationsDepartment of Economic and Social Affairs Sustainable Development


Thank you Madam Chair for this opportunity to take the floor.
Malaysia would like to support the statement by Pakistan on behalf of the
Group 77 and China outlining actions towards increasing energy
accessibility, improving energy efficiency and enhancing international and
regional cooperation.
We welcome the Chairman?s draft document. However, as already
expressed bt several other countries we strongly call for the setting of timebased
targets for renewable energy in the national energy mix for countries
which have not already done so.
Such targets along with key performance indicators will not only
demonstrate our commitment, it will also assist in tracking and measuring
our progress.
Madam Chair,
We look forward to the inclusion of these targets in the CSD 15 final text.
Thank you.
