The Association of Southeast Asian Nations is on track to be the world's fourth largest economy by 2030 and beyond. Its oil demand is expected to rise by about 1.2 million b/d in 2025, LNG demand is seen at 30 million mt/year by 2022, and there's a huge push for renewables in the energy mix. But the region does not seem to be getting enough attention, overshadowed by giants China and India.
In this podcast, Paul Bartholomew, managing editor for steel policy and industry, joins editorial director for China Sebastian Lewis in discussing the prospects for the ASEAN, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and how policies can support commodity and energy demand growth in the region.
