He maintained that, energy efficiency policies aim to deliver the maximum amount of social and economic benefit from the energy we use.

China's September crude imports rose 18 per cent from a year earlier to 33.06 million tonnes, or 8.04 million bpd on daily basis, customs data showed, compared with the USA four-week average of 7.98 million bpd.

"One reason the gold/oil ratio spikes around periods of financial crisis is because oil prices tend to fall when economic growth is weak and investors are anxious, while gold thrives in that environment", he added.
