TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22
10:00 AM - 2:45 PM
Hudson Institute invites you to a high-level conference to examine the major political, economic and security developments underway in the Eastern Mediterranean.
The discovery of massive quantities of hydrocarbons in both the Israeli and Cypriot exclusive economic zones, and the selection of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline, redraws the region’s hydrocarbon map and will significantly impact energy security policies. This transformation has emerged as large political upheavals continue throughout the area. Primary topics of discussion will be: 1) the emerging strategic relationship of Israel, Greece, and Cyprus; 2) changes in the region’s energy security environment; and 3) Turkey’s reorientation toward Islamism and the East.
Hudson Institute has invited political, military, and energy representatives from the U.S., Greece, Cyprus, and Israel to discuss these timely topics.
H.E. Christos Panagopoulos, Ambassador of Greece
H.E. George Chacalli, Ambassador of Cyprus
Congresswoman Illeana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL)
