The Asia EDGE Virtual Workshop Series will convene U.S. private sector stakeholders and U.S. government officials across nine U.S. government agencies to facilitate deep-dive discussions on regional and sub-sector specific priorities for U.S. energy companies in the Indo-Pacific. U.S. industry participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Highlight U.S. industry priorities and challenges to inform future Asia EDGE programs
  • Learn about programmatic priorities and provide feedback on existing Asia EDGE programs
  • Gain increased access to the strategic tools and resources available to U.S. companies through Asia EDGE 
  • Join the Energy Industry Working Group Network to leverage export promotion services and receive regular updates on Asia EDGE activities

To include a diverse industry sub-set and promote robust discussion, each Virtual Workshop will be limited to 50 U.S. industry participants.

The Asia EDGE Virtual Workshop Series will culminate in an in-person Asia EDGE Summit in Washington, D.C. on June 29-30, 2021.
