India has been invited to the ministerial meeting of the International Energy Agency (IEA) in October in Paris, the organisation’s deputy executive director Richard Jones said here Wednesday.
India is not a member of the 30-nation OECD or the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development that aims at helping governments foster prosperity and fight poverty through economic growth and financial stability.
