Financing China’s Expanding Role in Global Energy
The Energy and National Security Program and the Freeman Chair in China Studies hosted Kevin Gallagher and Bo Kong to discuss the role of Chinese state financing in global energy development and to present findings from two of their recently published studies from the Global Economic Governance Initiative at Boston University. The first study authored by Dr. Gallagher, 'Fueling Growth and Financing Risk', examines the benefits and risks of China's development finance in the global energy sector. The other study led by Dr. Bo Kong, entitled 'The Globalization of Chinese Energy Companies', tracks the role that the Chinese state has played in helping domestic energy firms to become global household names in the industry. Edward Chow, Senior Fellow with the CSIS Energy and National Security Program, moderated the discussion.
