GEF and the United Nations Economic Committee for Europe (UNECE)

For its third year as a member of the Group of Gas Experts of UNECE, Alexandros Lagakos had the pleasure to represent the Greek Energy Forum and to present within the imposing building of UN Palais De Nations in Geneva on the topic of global LNG trading and optionality.
