As noted in the reports, the energy industries of different countries are forced to respond to common challenges provoked by the climate agenda and the technological revolution. Countries had to look for options to limit greenhouse gas emissions, address infrastructure development issues in the context of digitalization, etc.

The search for adequate answers to these challenges is given an important place in the program of the Ashgabat forum, which combines two main aspects of a sustainable future in its agenda - long-term energy and environmental security.

On the first day of the forum, within a separate session, investment opportunities in the Turkmen sector of the Caspian Sea will also be discussed.
