THE Asean Conference on Energy, Innovation and Sustainable Development 2010 will be held on Oct 4 and 5 at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre, Putrajaya.
A total of 16 countries, 10 from Asean — Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Brunei, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos, and from the Asia-Pacific Rim — Japan, South Korea, India, Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand, have been invited to participate in this conference on energy, innovation and sustainable development.
Some 20 speakers of international standing from academia and industry have been invited to speak at the conference ranging from fossil fuel to renewable energy and latest innovation in energy.
An interesting fact is that a CEO Forum will be held on the sidelines of the conference on the second day, Oct 5.
Some of the speakers include Robert Dixon from the World Bank, Prof Rainer Ibana, Prof Haruo Imai, Prof Neal Chung, Paul Hattle from Asian Development Bank, Jim Forbes and Prof Wan Hasiah Abdullah.
CEOs are expected to attend because the topics include “Oil & gas industry can evolve to produce clean energy.”
There are three other topics for CEOs to deliberate on at the forum. After this, their discussions at the forum will be presented at the plenary session.
“All of the attending delegates come primarily from the energy sector,” said organising chairman Tony Moses.
He said that it would be a perfect opportunity for businesses in the energy sector to network and conduct business in preparation for the year 2011, while understanding the developments in the global energy industry.
