Please join the Atlantic Council’s Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security for a discussion with leading experts assessing China, Japan, the Republic of Korea (ROK), and ASEAN perspectives on energy security and their respective energy strategies. Our featured discussants will include Mr. Edward C. Chow, Senior Fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Dr. Van Jackon, Visiting Fellow at the Center for a New American Security, Mr. Robert A. Manning, Senior Fellow of the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security at the Atlantic Council, and Ms. Meredith Miller, Senior Vice President of Trade, Economic, and Energy Affairs and Director of the National Bureau of Asian Research.

Energy security is high on the agenda of all major actors in East Asia– China, Japan, ROK, and ASEAN. All are heavily dependent on imports of oil from the Middle East. Japan, the ROK, China, and Taiwan are the world’s largest importers of natural gas. Volatile, uncertain global energy markets make the energy question ever more central to the region. The Shale revolution and the prospects of US gas and oil exports to the region have become a new factor in Asia’s energy equation.

This Atlantic Council event is part of the Cross-Straits Series of the Brent Scowcroft Center’s Asia Security Initiative, which examines strategic and current affairs surrounding cross-straits relations.
