Bangkok, Thailand

ESCAP Commission resolution 67/2 calls for ESCAP to convene the Asian and Pacific Energy Forum (APEF) under the theme of regional cooperation for enhanced energy security and the sustainable use of energy. To prepare for the ministerial Forum in May 2013, an extensive preparatory process has taken place, building consensus throughout the Asia-Pacific region. The Regional Preparatory Meeting (RPM) is the final intergovernmental meeting before APEF itself, where key documents will be discussed such as the draft Ministerial Declaration and the draft Regional Plan of Action.
