Trade, Economic, and Energy Affairs (TEEA)
The mission of the Trade, Economic, and Energy Affairs (TEEA) group is to foster collaborative solutions to the common challenges that are facing the United States and Asia in these arenas. TEEA’s research focuses on three broad areas: energy security and policy; energy and the environment; and trade, investment, and economic engagement.
Today, three key factors—the rise of China and India, the shifting balance of economic power, and Asia’s dramatic growth in energy demand—are increasingly influencing global markets, the environment, and geopolitics. TEEA examines these issues by drawing on an international network of specialists to convene high-level dialogues, and to conduct innovative research that results in actionable policy recommendations.
"[The Pacific Energy Summit] was indeed a world-class, top-level conference in its preparation and execution engaging participants with meaty discussion regarding policy and business choices…for Asia."
—Tatsuo Masuda, Nagoya University of Commerce and Business; Japan Petroleum Exploration Corporation, speaking on the 2011 Pacific Energy Summit
TEEA research and analyses are broadly disseminated among senior leaders in policy, industry, and research to better inform economic and strategic decisionmaking in the Asia-Pacific. Experts share insights through a number of channels, including workshops and conferences, publications, Q&A’s, and corporate and policy briefings. Through these efforts, TEEA helps to bridge the gap between industry and policy.
