Oxford Energy Podcast – China’s rocky road to recovery

In this podcast, David Ledesma talks to Michal Meidan, Director of the China Energy Research Programme at the Institute, following the publication of her OIES Comment, “China’s rocky road to recovery”, which looks at China’s oil demand growth this year. The podcast also addresses some emerging trends in China’s natural gas market and discusses the outlook for macroeconomic and energy policies as China gradually gets back to work. David and Michal discuss the impact of low oil and gas prices as well as market liberalisation on demand, and question whether China will be able to absorb the excess global oil and LNG as it recovers from COVID-19.
