(EnergyAsia, February 1, Friday) — Energy and global warming will be among the key issues discussed when a delegation of US political and business women leaders meet their counterparts in several Chinese cities on March 13 to 22.

Clara Lippert Glenn, President and CEO of The Oxford Princeton Programme, the world’s leading provider of education and training solutions to the energy, commodity and derivatives markets, will be a member of the US Stellar Women’s Leadership Delegation visiting Hong Kong, Lijiang, Beijing and Shanghai.

They will exchange ideas on vital issues including:

• Economy: Empowering women in China — managing the largest migration in history
• Energy and Global Warming: Can China and the US lead the way?
• Investment: What are the best opportunities to invest in the world’s fastest growing economy?

“I am honoured to be on the forefront of forging ties with Chinese business counterparts,” said Ms Lippert Glenn.

“The Oxford Princeton Programme has made inroads into the Chinese market and we intend to build our ties and presence in this critical global market.”

As the world’s most populous nation with a rapidly growing economy, China’s demand for energy is surging. That demand is projected to increase by 150% by 2020.

China’s oil consumption is growing by 7.5% per year, seven times faster than the US.

The Oxford Princeton Programme is committed to offering Chinese businesses and nationals with a wide array of training avenues including web-based courses to support their own advancements within the energy sector.

The programme’s first course offering in China was recently held in Beijing on January 23-25. International Oil Trading – Advanced Techniques and Strategic Price Risk Management was attended by both Chinese professionals as well as representatives of businesses based in China. Plans for additional workshops are underway.
