The workshop will engage senior US, Russian, Asian and European experts in a strategic conversation on multilateral cooperation on the broad issues of energy for the Asia-Pacific region, including sources of supply; the food, water, energy nexus and the impact of climate; and energy trade and maritime routes. The goal is to explore ways to advance multilateral cooperation to address complicated issues that no one or two countries can address alone.
The format is a roundtable discussion with an agenda structured to allow sufficient time for debate of issues by all participants. The workshop will bring together a broad audience of experts from government, the policy community, academia, energy, food, and shipping companies to facilitate a broad exchange of ideas. Each of the sessions will feature a brief opening presentation from US, Russian, Asia and European experts to frame the issues for debate. Modified Chatham house rules will be followed to encourage frank discussions and a full airing of concerns
We sincerely hope you can join us and are looking forward to your active participation throughout the discussions.
