Ad-hoc seminar on China's views on global energy governance

On 23 October 2012 the Energy Charter Secretariat organised an Ad-hoc seminar on China's views on global energy governance. An official Chinese delegation headed by the Director General of the Energy Research Institute (ERI) of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) Prof. Han Wenke, briefed the participants on China's views on the subject.

Participants also discussed the proposal by the Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao of January 2012 regarding the possibility of establishing a global energy market governance mechanism under the G20 framework that would involve energy suppliers, consumers and transit countries. ERI researchers presented the results of their study on global energy governance, existing international frameworks and their future role.
