Summary

China's projected oil import requirements and greenhouse gas emissions from energy consumption will dominate the international oil market and environmental agendas. As a result of these energy requirements, China has recently expanded development of domestic oil supplies and coal production. Effectively limiting greenhouse gas emmissions will require a sustained international effort to increased energy efficiency and market reform in China.
