The conference will discuss issues such as the stable supply of energy in a situation where the issue of energy security has become an international issue after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

At the opening ceremony, South Korean President Yoon Seok-wyeh addressed the participants, noting that “due to the uncertainty in the supply and demand of energy and raw materials, the importance of energy security is increasing day by day”, and the South Korean Government is considering efforts to promote the diversification of energy supply and support the development of overseas resources.
