Cumbre Energetica Suramericana

MABB © ®

The first South American Energy Summit will take place in the Venezuelan Caribbean island Isla Margarita, on the 16th and 17th of March. This is, as you probably already know, one of the most ambitious plans or wishes of Hugo Chavez. The aim is to integrate the energy needs of the whole continent (except the US of course).

Twelve nations are supposed to be represented there (Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Perú, Surinam, Uruguay y Venezuela). The most likely topics to be covered, as you can see in the La Razón graphic, are natural gas, oil and Brazil's Ethanol.

As it could be expected, Bolivia's president Morales has already RSVPd.

More on the event as it happens.
