Be part of Australia's national conference on resources and energy
01 August 2012
Delegates attending the inaugural Australian National Conference on Resources and Energy (ANCRE) will be part of a special event of national importance.
Organised by the Bureau of Resources and Energy Economics (BREE), ANCRE is the venue in 2012 for policy makers, industry leaders, academics and international experts to present and to discuss domestic and global issues critical to the future of the Australian resources and energy sectors.
The conference will be held at the Royal Theatre at the National Convention Centre in Canberra on 18-19 September. The conference venue is just 10 minutes’ walk from Floriade, the location of Canberra’s famous flower festival held every year in September.
ANCRE will showcase innovative research from Australia and around the world on key issues such as prospects for commodity prices, infrastructure, investment, and energy markets and technologies.
Featuring an impressive list of speakers from government, industry and academia, ANCRE 2012 is the only national conference on resources and energy sponsored and organised by the Australian Federal Government. It will be opened by the Hon Martin Ferguson AM, Minister for Resources and Energy.
Just a few of the ANCRE 2012 highlights and sessions include: Australia’s Place in Asia (featuring a key note from Dr Ken Henry AM and a distinguished panel); Resources Boom: Prospects and Challenges (featuring keynote by David Peever of Rio Tinto); Making the Most of Australia’s Opportunities: The Infrastructure Story (featuring keynote by Hon. Peter Beattie, Australia’s Resources Sector Supplier Envoy); Australia’s Energy Future (featuring keynote by Drew Clarke, Secretary of Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism); and Australia and the Global Resources Story (featuring keynote by Alberto Calderon of BHP Billiton).
BREE’s Executive Director and Chief Economist, Professor Quentin Grafton says “This conference is a ‘must attend’ event for anyone who wants to better understand where Australia has come and is going in terms of the resources boom, Australia’s place in the world, and the global energy future.”
