A new book containing the outcome of the “Forum on ASEAN Energy Market Integration (AEMI)” held on August 27 – 28, 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand, has been released by the ASEAN Studies Center. Two of the seven chapters of the book were co-written by Dr. Adoracion Navarro, a senior research fellow of state think tank Philippine Institute for Development Studies.

Titled “ASEAN Energy Market Integration (AEMI): from coordination to integration”, the book contains seven papers authored by AEMI Group members as a first step toward providing the analytical underpinnings for the rationale of the AEMI, its building blocks, and implementation. Navarro co-wrote the chapters “AEMI and ASEAN energy poverty” and “The pathway to AEMI”.

The AEMI Group is a network of academics from universities and research institutes across the ASEAN. It aims to promote free flow of energy products, services, investments, and skilled labor across the ASEAN through 2030, within the framework of the ASEAN Economic Community.

The AEMI Forum aimed to foster the dialogue between ASEAN policymakers and the members of the AEMI Group. It was convened by the Chulalongkorn University and the AEMI Group, with the support of the ASEAN Secretariat and the ASEAN Center for Energy.

Navarro is one of two Philippine representatives to the Forum participated by government and research officials of ASEAN countries and other international organizations and research groups. She has a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of the Philippines and a Master of Public Administration in Economic Policy Management from Columbia University. Her fields of expertise are infrastructure, electricity markets, and public-private partnerships.

A copy of the book is available at the PIDS Library. For more information, please contact the ASEAN Studies Center, Chulalongkorn University, through email: asean@chula.ac.th or by visiting their website at www.asean.chula.ac.th.
