The Icelandic President Olafur Ragnar Grimsson, who was in Abu Dhabi to participate at the World Future Energy Summit, has said that he was leaving the city with commitment to turn inspiration into implementation.
Expressing satisfaction over the results of first summit, the Icelandic President expressed, "The time for lengthy debates and dialogue is over. Now it is action that must bring us together, and that is the mission of Masdar, the World Future Energy Summit and Abu Dhabi."
