China is actively trying to tap into conventional and unconventional gas resources, but it has not yet shown the technological and innovative capacity to take advantage of its shale reserves competitively. This webcast focuses on three questions:

  1. How will China’s supply and demand affect global gas and energy markets?
  2. As China’s manufacturing costs increase, how and to what extent will China’s natural gas help it remain globally competitive? How will this affect the business investment decisions of foreign companies that arrived for cheap manufacturing?
  3. How can foreign firms help the Chinese exploit their shale gas reserves?

Who should attend: Senior-level executives whose strategy, planning, and/or supervisory responsibilities include China; executives from energy MNCs; and strategists concerned with energy costs.
