Global Energy Forum
Official Opening of the Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum
Welcome Remarks By:
President and CEO,
Gov. Jon M. Huntsman, Jr.,
I would like to take a moment to pay tribute to the five UAE diplomats whose lives were cut short, while trying to bring humanitarian relief to Afghanistan. Their sacrifice reminds us that the values that unite us are stronger than any evil that attempts to divide us.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the first Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum.
This Forum represents an important addition to the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week…and will add a critical geopolitical perspective to the central challenge… of how we meet the world’s growing demand for energy…
