On 28 August 2017, Belgium’s Director-General for Energy, Ms Nancy Mahieu at the Federal Public Service for Economy, received Energy Charter Secretary General Dr Urban Rusnák. The Secretary General informed Ms Mahieu on the relocation of the Secretariat’s premises, the current developments in the Expansion of the Energy Charter Process and the modernization of the Energy Charter Treaty, including its transit and investment protection provisions. In this context particular attention was given to the governance and pathway for the modernization process, especially as the Energy Charter constituency is strongly globalizing. Also non-legal instruments to enhance the business climate for energy were discussed, such as the active participation of countries in a new publication of the Energy Charter Secretariat, the Energy Investment Risk Assessment.
