 IN ANCHORAGE JULY 23-24
 ANCHORAGE, Alaska, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- As the global village races toward the 21st Century, oil resources in OPEC countries, Alaska and the Commonwealth of Independent States could change the complexion of energy use on our planet, the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) said today.
 These three entities will sit down with other oil rich states and nations in July to participate in "Energy Issues for the 1990s," an international conference sponsored by the University of Alaska Anchorage School of Business and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).

Easton Jr., acting assistant secretary, Office of Domestic & International Energy Policy, U.S. Department of Energy; David McIntosh, executive director of President's Council on Competitiveness and assistant to the vice president for Domestic Policy, and The Honorable Walter Hickel, Governor of Alaska.
