Maritime Energy Resources in Asia: 2010 Phase 2 Workshop

In partnership with the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam, NBR hosted a private workshop as part of its project on "Maritime Energy Resources in Asia: Opportunities for Joint Development" in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, on August 5-7, 2010. The main objective of the workshop was to provide project experts with an opportunity to present their preliminary findings to top experts on contemporary maritime issues and generate critical discussion and feedback. In 2011, the research findings will be broadly disseminated through publications and briefings to stakeholders.

Workshop participants include more than 50 experts from academia and industry, in addition to the core project team members. The workshop was strictly off the record, and research papers are not for external circulation.
