LONDON, Sept. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On November 5 & 6, Ho Chi Minh City will be the setting for the 3rd Coaltrans Emerging Asian Coal Markets, having previously been hosted in Bangkok with over 200 leading coal industry specialists each year.  

Vietnam is forecast to have the greatest growth in installed energy generation capacity outside of Indonesia between 2013 and 2020. Timelines have been set and plans are in place to move the projects forward. By moving the 3rd Coaltrans Emerging Asian Coal Markets to Ho Chi Minh City, the conference will focus on the opportunities this will create for the international coal producers as the country becomes increasingly dependent on coal imports.

Duong Quang Thanh, Vice President, Vietnam Electricity, Do Thi Thanh Binh, Deputy Director, Commercial Division, Petrovietnam Power Corporation and Dato' Mohd Nazri Bin Shahruddin, Vice President, Energy Ventures, Tenaga Nasional Berhard will deliver the industry keynote presentations providing the delegation with insights into the vast opportunities in the ASEAN region.

South East Asia has seen a steady rise in coal demand and coal imports since 2013, an increase which is expected to continue rapidly. With widespread plans for construction of new coal-fired power plants across the ASEAN region, key topics will include financing options for coal-fired power in Asia and creating context for ASEAN coal-fired power development. Additionally, there will be a specific focus on industry opportunities in Vietnam in which leading coal producers and investors will discuss key issues in this region.

The breadth of insight provided by industry leaders and the extensive networking opportunities will make the Coaltrans Emerging Asian Coal Markets an unmissable event, bringing attention to the ASEAN region's vast potential. For more information please visit
