Major economies to hold energy symposium in Moscow

TOKYO, March 25 Kyodo

About 150 energy industry and government officials from the Group of Seven (G-7) nations and Russia will hold a symposium next Tuesday in Moscow, Japanese Foreign Ministry officials said Wednesday.

The Business Consultative Meeting will discuss problems facing the energy-related industries, and will offer their advice to a meeting of energy ministers from the G-7 and Russia to be held the following day in Moscow, the officials said.

The ministerial meeting of the G-7 nations -- Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States -- and Russia is expected to take up as its agenda the market outlook, the competitive framework in the energy sectors, and the environment, they said.

At the summit of the G-7 and Russia in June, Russian President Boris Yeltsin proposed holding the energy ministerial talks.

The results of the ministerial talks in Moscow will be reported at this year's summit talks to be held in the British city of Birmingham on May 15-17.
