The Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations (HPAIR) is student-run organization of the Harvard University Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Its flagship project is its international student conference, held in Asia each summer. The conference is centered around six stimulating topics focusing on international relations, business, political economy, culture, technology, and a variety of other topics, and brings together students and a distinguished group of speakers from across the globe to discuss the most important issues relevant to the Asia-Pacific region.
For this year conference in Singapore, the HPAIR undertakes "a series of interviews with world leaders, renowned scholars and leading business professionals to discuss their personal experiences in studying and helping to shape the future of Asia". This paper details my responses to its interview questions on energy issues in China, China's hunt for oil in Africa, environmental policy in China, and the Asia Pacific Partnership for Clean Development and Climate. It appears in Redefining Asia: Visions and Realities, edited by Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations, Harvard University, 2006.
