Tomorrow will mark the beginning of the China-Canada Energy and Environment Forum, which will be held at the Kerry Center in Beijing.
The Agenda, organized primarily, I gather, by the University of Alberta China Institute, covers the afternoon of Nov. 3 and the morning of Nov. 4, with panel topics including:
- Overview of bilateral relations, energy and environment
- Energy sector development in the past year
- Energy efficiency, other energy sources and environment
- Investment, trade and regulations for better energy and environmental cooperation
- Local advantages for bilateral cooperation
Some of the people I’m particularly looking forward to hearing from include Han Wenke, D-G of the ERI andÂ Che Changbo, Dep. D-G of OIl and Gas Strategy Research Centre, Ministry of Land Resources, oh and Gao Zhikai, Director Nat’l Associaion of Int’l Studies / past VP CNOOC.
It will be interesting to see how this forum turns out, given the huge turnout at the China-Denmark Climate Change Forum 2 weeks ago that had a turnout of nearly 1000, including CEOs of Denmark’s biggest companies.
I look forward to finding out exactly who pays attention to this bilateral relationship in China, and hearing what they say about it.
