Amid the turmoil that has characterized Venezuela in the last year, the energy sector has often been lost in the haze. But it is clear that the downward trend in oil production combined with sliding prices has added to the pressure on Venezuela’s economy, leading some experts to question the viability of the nation’s oil outlook. Reports that Venezuela recently imported light crude received international attention and together with OPEC’s internal debate over production cuts are putting the spotlight back on the country’s oil industry.

We are delighted to be joined by Francisco J. Monaldi, Visiting Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and a leading expert on Venezuelan energy policy, who will disentangle the politics from production and discuss some of the possible outcomes of these trends both for Venezuela and its neighbors.

Monaldi’s presentation will be followed by an interactive question and answer session online. If you are interested but unable to attend, please register anyway and we will send you the link.
