On September 20, 2012, The National Bureau of Asian Research and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars launched NBR's 2012 Energy Security Report, "Oil and Gas for Asia: Geopolitical Implications of Asia's Rising Demand," in Washington, D.C.

The event convened senior policy and industry leaders, and Asia energy specialists, for a discussion of how Asia’s rising energy demand, coupled with angst over prices and the reliability of future oil and LNG supplies, is shaping the strategic and economic agendas of Asia’s major powers.

The 2012 Energy Security Report launch featured remarks from Congressman Charles W. Boustany Jr. (co-chair of the U.S.-China Working Group and member of the House Ways and Means Committee) and U.S. Under Secretary Robert D. Hormats (Under Secretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy, and the Environment).

Background on NBR's Energy Security Program

Now in its eighth year, the Energy Security Program convenes top energy and geopolitical experts from industry, research, and policy for an assessment of the developments taking place in Asian energy markets and their implications for geopolitics. To inform and strengthen the public policy dialogue, experts share insights and recommendations through a number of channels, including an invitation-only spring workshop, NBR’s annual Energy Security Report, and a public fall launch event.

In March 2012, the United States, European Union, and Japan filed a complaint in the WTO against China’s rare earth trade practices. Experts Yufan Hao and Jane Nakano assess the context, possible consequences, and implications of this case—for China, the rare earth industry, and global trade and politics.
