The International Energy Group Burisma offered its vision of reforming the energy sector and development of Ukrainian gas industry at the conference on ” The State of the Ukraine’s Energy Sector” organized by the Atlantic Council’s Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center (the Atlantic Council) and the Ukrainian Centre for Economic and Political Studies named after Olexander Razumkov (Razumkov Centre) in Washington. The Group was represented by the Advisor to the Board of Directors Vadym Pozharskyi.
“Ukraine’s gas sector reforms are critically important for national security and independence. It is reassuring that key market players, NGOs and politicians are closely working together to improve the regulatory environment, promoting an ongoing dialogue between all stakeholders and making an open and attractive natural gas market for foreign investors”, says Vadym Pozharskyi.
Among people that joined the discussion were the Researcher of the Center for Strategic and International Studies Edward Chow, the Atlantic Council’s Senior Research Fellow Ariel Cohen, the Ambassador, Founder and Head of the Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Center Richard Moningstar and the Director of the Razumkov Center’s energy programs Vladimir Omelchenko.
The discussion was moderated by the Senior Researcher at the Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center Anders Aslund and the editor of UkraineAlert Melinda Hering.
