ASEAN Energy Market Integration (AEMI): From coordination to integration
This book represents the outcome of the Forum on ASEAN Energy Market Integration (AEMI), convened by Chulalongkorn University and the AEMI Group, with the support of the ASEAN Secretariat and the ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE). The objective of the Forum was to foster the dialogue between ASEAN policymakers (Track I) and the members of the AEMI Group (Track II), and it was held in Bangkok on 27-28 August 2013.
The AEMI Group is a network of academics from universities and research institutes across ASEAN, who are making the case for the free flow of energy products, services, investments and skilled labor in ASEAN through 2030, within the framework of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).
This book includes seven AEMI papers prepared for the Forum by members of the AEMI Group as a first step towards providing the analytical underpinnings for the rationale for AEMI, its building blocks and its implementation. It also includes the Forum Conclusions, as well as a Discussion Paper circulated to Forum participants to serve as a guide for the discussions during the Forum. Forum participants included the AEMI Group members, seven Senior Officials of Energy (SOEs) or their delegate, the ASEAN Secretariat, ACE, two ASEAN specialized bodies (ASCOPE and HAPUA), one sub-sector network (RE-SSN) as well as a number of government officials, international organizations and research institutes.
This book is published by the ASEAN Studies Center, Chulalongkorn University. The duties of the Center are to: coordinate work related to ASEAN studies within the university, in order to build up the competency of the faculties, colleges and institutes; create a body of knowledge, to develop an in-depth collaborative academic network related to ASEAN issues; and disseminate the knowledge about ASEAN through extensive activities.
