The conference is organised with a view to introducing Cyprus audiences to the increasingly complex global energy landscape. Given galloping international and regional developments and the often fragmented and limited discussion on the topic in Cyprus, the aspiration is to bring the international perspective in order for public debate to be informed of global realities and trends that shape events. Key themes to be explored include global debates relating to energy; energy relations of Europe as the largest potential market in the neighbourhood for the East Med resources; and Eastern Mediterranean energy developments and regional cooperation prospects.
