U.S. Business Discusses Sustainability with ASEAN Energy Ministers
(Vientiane) A delegation of 6 leading U.S. Energy companies organized by the US-ASEAN Business Council engaged the ASEAN Energy Ministers during the 32nd ASEAN Ministers of Energy Meeting.  The mission was led by the Council’s Energy Committee leaders ConocoPhillips, GE and Peabody and Kathy Santillo, Regional Managing Director at the US-ASEAN Business Council.  The delegation presented the Ministers with key messages based on the ASEAN Plan of Action for Energy Cooperation (APAEC) and discussed ways that the Council members can partner with ASEAN governments to  support ASEAN-wide energy priorities.
“The ASEAN Energy Ministers meeting is a vital platform for discussion of sustainable energy development throughout the region,” said Kathy Santillo, the Council’s Regional Managing Director.   “Our delegation this year includes a wide variety of companies, including specialists in mobile power production, clean coal technology, oil and gas, infrastructure development, hydropower, smart grids, mining, solar, and wind solutions. One of the core goals of the Council’s Energy Committee members is helping ASEAN achieve their energy goals as laid out in the APAEC and improve market integration and efficiencies. By bringing such a diverse group of companies, we hope to be able to contribute to that discussion and find win-win solutions and partnerships.”
The delegation also held bilateral meetings with Deputy Secretary General of ASEAN, Lim Hong Hin, H.E. Suy Sem, Minister for Energy and Mines, Cambodia, H.E. Susilo Siswoutomo, Vice Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Indonesia, H.E. Soulivong Daravong, Minister of Energy and Mines, Laos, H.E. U Aung Htoo, Deputy Minister for Energy, Myanmar, Undersecretary Loreta G. Ayson, Department of Energy, Philippines, H.E. Cao Quoc Hung, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade for Vietnam, and U.S. Ambassador to Laos Daniel Clune and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Dr. Phyllis Yoshida.
The Council delegation also discussed themes that included skilled labor mobility in the context of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) as well as energy technology in electrical grid integration and renewable energy development.
Companies participating in the delegation included ConocoPhillips, GE, and Peabody Energy, as well as first-time AMEM participants APR Energy, Emerson and SunEdison.
