“Conferences
such as these are important to the LNG business in Asia,” said Patricia
Roberts, Associate Director, CWC Group Ltd. She continued, “We are seeing
several new LNG projects focusing their sales in the Asian market.  LNG
agreements committing long-term volumes to Asia are being signed by a variety
of established players as well as new inter-regional sellers.  The Asian
region is expected to grow strongly over the next decade and remain the
pace-setter of the global industry. That is why the inter-personal
relationships made at this Summit prove critical over the long term”.
