The Duality of Falling Oil Prices: Boon or Bust?

April 16, 2015 | 17:00 ET, 21:00 GMT

Over the past six months, declining oil prices have sent shockwaves through the global economy.

Declining prices provide relief to government budgets in oil-importing countries, but are challenging for oil-exporting countries – especially those lacking a sufficient buffer. At the same time, low oil prices could slow efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions.

This flagship seminar brings together a diverse high level panel to discuss the impact fluctuating oil prices have on economies in the short and medium term.

The panelists will also look at the opportunities for energy subsidy reform and how best to deal with price volatility in energy markets.
