Abstract below the fold.

China's burgeoning economy has created increasing demand for reliable supplies of energy and is affecting the security, policies, economy, and environment of the East Asian region and the world. During this year's full-day China Symposium, part of the ongoing programming of the Columbia Center for Chinese Economy and Society, renowned scholars, policymakers, and members of the business community will examine the consequences of China's quest for energy.

The symposium will feature four panel discussions highlighting China's energy policy, international security, the domestic impact of China's energy crisis, and the economics that are impacting both the region and the global marketplace. It is the goal of the symposium to present the most current and useful scholarship on China's energy issues to an audience of interested scholars, students, business professionals, and community members.
