Oxford Energy Podcast – China day takeaways: How do long-term ambitions sit with short-term realities?

In this OIES Energy Podcast, Michal Meidan and David Ledesma discuss the key messages from the China Day that was held in mid-April. The China Day consisted of five webinars discussing various aspects of the 14th Five Year Plan and the country’s recently issued 2060 carbon neutrality goal. In this conversation, Michal and David take stock of some of the overarching themes that came up across the sessions, including the role of the state and the role of markets; the central government’s plans compared to implementation on the local level; the winners and losers from the energy transition and how they are perceived domestically. The podcast also looks at some of the implications for the oil, gas and power sectors as discussed in the China Day.
