The Eurasian Research Institute invites you to participate Politics, International Relations and Security Studies Seminar titled “ China in Central Asia Gas Sector: A monopolist or Reliable Partner?” that will be held on  February 15, 2018 at 15:00, by Farkhod Aminjonov Deputy Director and Co-Founder of Central Asia Institute for Strategic Studies based in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

At present, numerous attempts in developing a natural gas pipeline linking Central Asian exporters with markets in Europe have largely failed, leaving the region dependent on exports to either Russia or China. Therefore, there is a need to re-evaluate the strategy of Central Asian energy supplies to China. This seminar will approach this issue by looking at the current state of affairs and possible risks related to over-reliability on Chinese gas market.
