At this member-exclusive webinar, Gabriel Collins, Baker Botts Fellow in Energy & Environmental Regulatory Affairs at the Baker Institute, gave a strategic overview of key trends that are already influencing — or are poised to shape — China’s energy strategy in the 2020s. How will China use and procure energy in the coming decade? Collins addressed local and global factors through the lenses of energy, environmental concerns and national security drivers.
