Key aspects discussed included energy market structure and sector regulation, regional energy market integration, investment protection standards, national and international judicial remedies, international and domestic law, investment arbitration, the relevance of case law, local content, and price controls. Energy efficiency was also extensively discussed, including a draft national policy on energy efficiency. The workshop was sponsored by the EU Technical Assistance Facility for the SE4All initiative. Next steps are the finalisation of the accession reports, official validation, publication and dissemination. This will allow the Kingdom of Swaziland to take a well-informed decision on acceding to the ECT.
