Welcome Message

Junhui Sector Manager

Welcome to the World Bank East Asia and Pacific (EAP) Energy and Mining unit’s website.

 

This is an exciting time for the EAP Energy and Mining team. The pace of economic growth in this region is expected to register the fastest energy demand growth of all regions in the coming decade. In the medium term, the countries of this region face five major energy challenges which have implications for regional as well as global development:

 

  • manage energy demand growth and increase energy efficiency;
  • improve the energy sector’s ability to mobilize investment;
  • mitigate the environmental impact of energy use (particularly through the use of renewables including hydropower and through greater use of gas);
  • increase access to modern energy services; and
  • leverage regional energy resources through energy trade.

The EAP Energy and Mining team assists countries across the region in addressing these challenges. Our mission is to support EAP countries in meeting their energy needs for economic growth and poverty alleviation in an environmentally and socially sustainable manner.

I am proud to present the work of our team to you through this website. The site chronicles our past contributions to EAP countries and our current portfolio which give us confidence about addressing the region’s challenges in the coming years.

 

Please take the time to explore this site and understand the Bank’s energy activities in this region. I hope you will find this site a useful reference resource.

Sincerely yours,

Junhui Wu
