USA-China Energy and Trade: A Public Discussion with Chinese Officials

After brief remarks by the Chinese delegation, the forum will be open to the public. We encourage general questions and exchange of views with the Chinese delegation on promoting energy and trade issues between the world’s first and second largest economies.

Louisiana is a major port of US energy trades, and almost all the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export facilities currently approved or being processed by the US Dept. of Energy are located at the Gulf Coast. The Henry Hub near New Orleans will serve as the world LNG bench mark price point. Energy supply is essential for continued economic development of the USA and China, but reducing the environmental impacts of energy use are critical to global sustainability.
