Energy Relations and Policy Making in Asia: Conclusion

Energy Relations and Policy Making in Asia: Conclusion

One Belt One Road. It has been the Chinese government’s slogan of the last few years, and it may come to dominate the middle decades of the twenty-first century as the infrastructure and investment projects now being touted are realised, and the trade links between China and the world are significantly enhanced. These may be the four words that the world most closely associates with Xi Jinping, who came to power as China’s President in late 2012. © The Editor(s) (if applicable) and The Author(s) 2016. https://www.scopus.com/inward/record.uri?eid=2-s2.0-85018068233&doi=10.1007%2f978-981-10-1094-1_16&partnerID=40&md5=b0253707a9a718d29eed5a96e32eb2be

Energy Relations and Policy Making in Asia

Energy Relations and Policy Making in Asia

This volume goes beyond a conventional analysis of Asia’s energy relationships and explores the premise that energy relations in Asia in the 21st century should reinforce mutual interdependence. Conventional analyses of international energy relations stress the asymmetric nature of the risks and costs of disruptions to energy flows. Energy suppliers (net exporters) are concerned with the cost of a buyer looking elsewhere; energy consumers (net importers) are preoccupied with the costs associated with an interruption of supply. This perspective reflects the current transactional nature of energy relations and is clearly observed in the energy dynamics between countries in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and the economies of Northeast Asia (NEA). https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9789811010934
