2013 Pacific Energy Summit
Forging Trans-Pacific Cooperation for a New Energy Era
On April 2–4, 2013, NBR and Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada co-hosted the Summit, which convened key stakeholders from around the world in Vancouver, Canada, to discuss market and policy solutions for “Forging Trans-Pacific Cooperation for a New Energy Era.”
The annual Pacific Energy Summit provides a vehicle for ongoing collaboration and dialogue on the topics of energy security and climate change and seeks to forge lasting partnerships that address these challenges jointly.
This invitation-only event took place in an interactive forum where delegates explored what is needed to realize the full potential for more integrated energy trade and investment between Asia and North America.
To inform plenary sessions and prompt thought-provoking discussion, the 2013 Summit organizers commissioned policy papers from top experts in the field.
