What Makes for a "Good" Energy Trading Partnership?

On September 17, 2020, NBR held the virtual event “What Makes for a ‘Good’ Energy Trading Partnership?” Speakers outlined what makes for a “good” energy trading partnership and assess the political and economic conditions that are necessary to maximize the benefits from trade. This was the fourth event in the series “Reshaping Visions for Energy Security in the Indo-Pacific.”

About the Series

The event series “Reshaping Visions for Energy Security in the Indo-Pacific” will examine some of the broader issues shaping regional cooperation on energy—security, access, market reform, and trading partnerships—and identify key questions and recommendations for next steps. These findings will serve as the foundation for continued conversations throughout the year and into 2021 as part of NBR’s program on the Asia EDGE Initiative.
