The objective of this report is to develop the GTI Energy Cooperation Programme in Northeast Asia (NEA) to:
• build a common ground in understanding the potential of regional energy cooperation, issues of mutual concerns and the other countries’ perception of the challenges to energy collaboration,
• formulate common approaches and prioritize the areas and sectors of mutual interests to pursue energy cooperation under the GTI framework
• identify and profile possible projects to be initiated under the GTI umbrella in the near-term, including the design of the training programs for policy makers, and
• develop measures to enable the effective implementation of the GTI energy activities and
obtain proper financial support to this end.
