Evolving Energy Ties Between East and West AsiaVIEW EVENT DETAILS
(Invitation Only) Private Roundtable
As Asia’s rising economies continue to expand their global reach, a new east-west nexus is emerging—between eastern Asia and the Middle East. Over the next decade, there will be deeper integration between economies on both sides of the Eurasian continent. Relations between East and West Asia have long been driven by the east’s need for reliable access to energy resources and the west’s desire for energy markets. Today, however, these relationships are deepening, diversifying, and in some instances are diverging as countries respond to new economic and geostrategic realities in ways that position them well over the long term. The potential implications of these evolving ties, especially in the energy sphere, present a number of challenges and opportunities that have yet to be fully understood or explored.
With this in mind, the Asia Society Policy Institute and the Center for Energy Studies at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy are hosting a private roundtable discussion to explore evolving energy ties between Asia and the Middle East. The discussion will identify the key shifts and trends in energy trade and the energy security relationships between the two regions and analyze the implications for major countries in the region and the United States.
Attendance at this private roundtable is by invitation only. Registration and breakfast will begin at 8:30 a.m. For more information about the discussion please email PPass@asiasociety.org.
