President M Abdul Hamid, who is on a four-day state visit to India to attend the "Founding Conference of the International Solar Alliance (ISA) and Solar Summit-2018", will deliver his speech at the plenary session today morning, reports BSS. President's spouse Rashida Khanam, son Rejwan Ahammad Taufiq, MP, and concerned officials are accompanying him during the tour. The President will attend the solar conference where as many as 23 heads of the states and heads of the government and nine ministerial-level representatives are expected to take part in it.

The ISA has become the first treaty-based international and inter-governmental organisation to be headquartered in India. ISA secretariat is located in Delhi's neighbouring town of Gurgugram in the state of Haryana. On November 30 in 2015, the International Solar Alliance's initiative was launched at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Damodardas Modi and French President Francois Hollande with an aim to increasing the use of solar energy to reduce pressure on fossil fuels.

The ISA is conceived as a coalition of solar resource rich countries to address their special energy needs and will provide a platform to collaborate on addressing the identified gaps through a common, agreed approach. A joint declaration will come out from the conference, a foreign ministry spokesman said, adding that this participation would help enhance mutual cooperation among the 121-member countries for mutual gains through enhancing the solar energy utilization.

It would also help play an effective role to mitigate the climate change affects worldwide, the spokesman added. Earlier, President Hamid arrived India on March 8. He visited many places of Assam and Meghalaya states in the last two days. The President reached New Delhi yesterday afternoon and is scheduled to return home on March 12.
