7TH ASIAN MINISTERIAL ENERGY ROUNDTABLE

1-3 November 2017
Bangkok, Thailand

The 7th Asian Ministerial Energy Roundtable (AMER7) will take place in Bangkok, Thailand from 1-3 November 2017. Participation in this event is by invitation only.

The Government of Thailand will host this prestigious biennial event, which is a key feature of the global energy dialogue promoted under the neutral banner of the International Energy Forum. The Ministerial will be co-Hosted by the United Arab Emirates. AMER7 will commence with a Welcome Reception on 1 November. The Roundtable itself will take place on 2 November. Site visits are arranged for the following day.

The agenda, forthcoming in the weeks ahead, will allow ample opportunity for bilateral meetings.

In previous AMER events, IEF Ministers have recognised their interdependence and placed an emphasis on the need for trust and dialogue in building and sustaining partnerships. AMER6 was convened between the adoption of the United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda (UNSDA) 2030 and the Paris Agreement in 2015 to discuss Asian energy market dynamics. This culminated in the endorsement of a proposal by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to establish an Asian Energy Efficiency Knowledge Sharing Framework under the IEF that has since been adopted by the 2nd G20 Energy Ministers Meeting (Beijing, June 2016) and the IEF15 Ministerial (Algiers, September 2016). AMER7 will build upon these outcomes to strengthen established partnerships and forge new bonds accordingly. This event shall ultimately underpin the development of the increasingly complex and dynamic relationships between energy producers and consumers in Asia and beyond.
