Secretary Pompeo will travel to Houston, Texas on March 12 to deliver keynote remarks at CERA Energy Week’s “Reshaping the Energy Future” conference. The speech will address how America’s energy revolution strengthens national security in an age of renewed great power competition.

The Secretary also will participate in a roundtable with international energy firms on advancing the Asia EDGE “Enhancing Development and Growth through Energy” initiative and the energy pillar of the Middle East Strategic Alliance. These initiatives seek to promote a strong, growing, integrated, diversified, and resilient global energy market; catalyze private sector trade and investment; advance energy security for the United States, its allies, and partners; and promote regional cooperation and good governance in the extractives sector.
