00:00:47 Soundbite by Andris Piebalgs (in English): Unity for government to peruse the energy goals for some substantial period because energy investment are cost intensive and politically sensitive , so if I say that the purpose of this conference is not really to make a pledge .... It would be helpful to make a pledge , it is always helpful to make a pledge , but it would definitely potentially really to find some cooperation between the main stake holders definitely the government of Zambia , the government of Zambia to understand the aspirations and potential th government brings to this areas. Secondly the donors , and I am quite happy that the EU is moving to having Energy as the focal sector towards EDF 11 ( 11th European development Fund) with Zambian government. I can't say exactly the money which will be attributed but it will be substantial amount of our program that will go to supporting the energy sector in this particular country. 00:01:03
