International Energy Charter promotes advanced scientific cooperation with China
The Energy Charter Knowledge Centre contributed a 3-day training program within the context of the two-week long 2nd International Seminar on Belt and Road Initiative, Energy Connectivity & Innovation organised by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. This 3 day training was held in Beijing during October 15-17, and consisted of multiple knowledge stream deliveries and interactive discussions focusing on key global energy challenges, comparative analysis of investments into energy infrastructure in China and Europe, as well as issues to do with climate, the environment and sustainability. Further partners for this training included the Silk Road Academy and the Institute of Quantitative and Technical Economics of Chinese Academy of Social Science.
This high profile initiative included the participation of a group of some 35 international participants from many of China’s key partner countries in Eurasia and further afield. Participants were initially exposed to multiple presentations and interactive discussions led by Energy Charter Secretariat staff. There were also a number of presentations on the Chinese energy markets led by Chinese experts. The initiative was widely covered in the Chinese national media, generating substantial visibility for the Energy Charter process in China and the wider region.
