China has recently released its 13th Five Year Plan and is in the midst of implementing its One Belt One Road initiative, one of the largest and most comprehensive development projects in human history. These two plans are poised to have profound implications for regional connectivity and energy security.

With high levels of energy poverty, chronic air pollution and the pressing need for energy infrastructure investment coupled with the desire for increased regional energy connectivity, ASEAN will be the main playground for China’s Belt-Road project.

The roundtable will explore the implications of China’s growing engagement in Southeast Asia for energy security, investment climate and pollution reduction. It will focus on the following questions:

  • What are the most immediate priorities for energy infrastructure investment and energy connectivity in ASEAN?
  • What is the role of China’s newly formed financial institutions, the Silk Road Fund and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), in advancing energy investments in ASEAN?
  • What can Asian countries do to form a more effective, more integrated and ‘win-win’ energy market?
