China and the Middle East in a New Energy Context
Dr Michal Meidan, Associate Fellow, Asia Programme, Chatham House
China has long been engaged in the Middle East energy sector but changing energy and geopolitical dynamics, including the fall in global oil prices and concerns around the decline of US influence in the Middle East, could pave the way for a shift in China’s commercial and diplomatic involvement in the region.
Michal Meidan will draw on the findings of her recent Chatham House research paper to reflect on China’s ties with the Middle East and its role within the regional energy sector. She will assess Beijing’s views of its strategic role in the region and in global energy markets.
Attendance is strictly by invitation only. To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
This event is only open to Major Corporate Member and Partner organizations of Chatham House. To register for this event, please RSVP to Linda Bedford.
