On December 7-11, 2015, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency – in collaboration with the U.S. Departments of State, Commerce and Energy – will host the U.S.-ASEAN Energy Infrastructure Symposium and Reverse Trade Mission (RTM). These events will foster commercial partnerships to support clean power generation and grid modernization projects in some of the fastest-growing economies in Southeast Asia.
The delegation will include two dozen senior government officials and business executives from power utilities, generation facilities and national transmission companies in Cambodia, Laos PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and the ASEAN Secretariat.

These two opportunities will highlight current and future ASEAN priority energy projects, connect high-level ASEAN decision-makers with U.S. energy sector stakeholders, and showcase U.S. energy technologies and industry best practices.
1. Reverse Trade Mission (December 7-9)
With two simultaneous tracks, the RTMs – which will include stops in Denver, CO as well as Los Angeles and San Francisco, CA – will feature meetings and site visits with leading U.S. utilities, government organizations, national laboratories, industry associations and technology and equipment providers. The delegates will observe the design, manufacture, demonstration and operation of U.S. products and services that can support their energy priorities.
2. Technical Symposium (December 10-11)
The Symposium, taking place at the Fairmont Hotel, 950 Mason Street, in San Francisco, CA, will highlight current and future ASEAN energy infrastructure project opportunities that can benefit from leading U.S. technologies, as well as the regulatory frameworks, standards and financing mechanisms available to support them. The two-day event will feature plenaries from high-level government officials and industry leaders, as well as technical workshops and networking opportunities designed to connect U.S. companies to key stakeholders from Southeast Asia.
“Since 2009, USTDA has sponsored over 60 activities in Southeast Asia that have generated nearly $2.5 billion in U.S. exports and that are expected to deploy over 1,400 megawatts of renewable energy in the region,” said USTDA Director Leocadia I. Zak. “We are proud to strengthen our cooperation through these events and to work with our ASEAN partners to identify U.S. solutions that can help them meet their energy goals.”
