SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Government of Morocco and the Department of Energy are co-sponsoring the Third Conference of U.S.-Africa Energy Ministers. The theme of the conference is “Energy Partnerships for Sustainable Development: Energy Security and Regional Integration.”

The conference, hosted by the Government of Morocco in Casablanca, will serve as a venue for the Energy Ministers to meet with one another and with other public and private sector representatives to discuss important issues, including developing an attractive investment climate and identifying opportunities for partnerships and project development. The Casablanca Conference follows the first U.S.-Africa Energy Ministers Conference, hosted by the United States in Tucson, Arizona, in 1999, and the Second Ministerial Conference, hosted by South Africa in Durban, in 2000. These Conferences were productive in enhancing the dialogue among public and private sector representatives on key energy issues. President Bush's National Energy Policy also reaffirms the importance of the U.S.-African Energy Ministerial process in its ability to help promote democracy, good governance, human rights, trade investment, and global integration.

Public Participation

There is no charge for the private sector to participate in the Ministerial. However, businesses or other entities wishing to display exhibits can access a point of contact via the Government of Morocco's conference email address at casaconf@men.gov.ma. The cost of the exhibit space is $1000.00 per exhibit. The conference is open to the public with the exception of the Energy Ministers Only session on June 4, 2 to 4 p.m.
