Power Player: China's Quest for Energy

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

As its manufacturing base continues to expand rapidly, China has become a major importer of petroleum products and other strategic minerals. In 2003, China surpassed Japan to become the world's second largest energy consumer. Chinese energy demand continues to grow. China's thirst for energy is taking Beijing into areas where it previously kept a low profile - Central Asia, Latin America, Africa and above all, the Middle East. China now has strong energy ties with Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Venezuela, all countries that the United States considers either strategically important or highly troublesome. Please join us for a discussion on the implications of China's global search for energy security.
