Energy and Economic Competitiveness project is directly related with the Declaration in the 11th APEC Energy Ministerial Meeting (EMM) in Beijing, China, in September 2014, which called for specific research on the energy and economic competitiveness. The following three tasks will be carried out; (1) quantitative analysis on how energy affects industrial competitiveness with the most up-to-date knowledge of energy and industrial competitiveness, (2) make policy recommendations based on analysis for policy makers in the APEC region, and (3) disseminate information to the policy makers and concerned parties.
In this context, the two rounds of workshop will be held in order to gain knowledge and deepen our quantitative analysis with the support of relevant experts.
Moreover, a progress report will be presented at the upcoming EWG meetings and the EMM in Cebu, the Philippines, in October 2015. A final report will be prepared by the EMM in Peru in 2016.
