On May 13th, the Energy Bar Association’s International Energy and Transactions Committee and AE2C co-sponsored a brownbag seminar to review and discuss China’s Energy Policies. Jones Day hosted the event in downtown Washington DC, just blocks from the Capitol. AE2C president, Bob Gee, served as the moderator for the group of expert panelists including Kevin Jianjin Tu, Senior Associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Harry Vidas, Vice President of ICF Consulting, Mingda Zhao, Senior Associate in Vinson & Elkins Corporate Department, and remotely, Michael E. Arruda, Partner in Jones Day’s Energy Group.
Many thanks to AE2C member Marvin Liang whose law firm Jones Day hosted this event.
The discussion centered on China’s comprehensive energy supply system, and the challenges the country faces as energy consumption continues to increase.
