TOKYO -- The chief executive of Malaysian state energy company Petronas on Friday called for a transition to cleaner power generation that balances global decarbonization pressures with economic needs.

The appeal was made to businesses and financial institutions at a Japanese government-sponsored event in Tokyo attended by Southeast Asian state energy executives and government officials, part of the Asia Zero Emission Community concept announced by Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in January last year.
