Li Yalan named IGU president for 2021-2024

The council of the International Gas Union (IGU) named Li Yalan as president of the union from 2021-2024, with Beijing set to host the 2024 World gas conference.

As part of the presidency, China will take the lead in furthering the mission of IGU to advocate gas as an integral part of a sustainable global energy system and to promote the political, technical and economic progress of the gas industry.

“This is an extremely exciting time for the gas industry, and we strongly believe that the People’s Republic of China is perfectly placed to lead the IGU in the important role it plays in advocating the use of natural gas,” said David Carroll, the current IGU President.

He added that under China’s leadership the industry is set to build on the work done previously on promoting and understanding the role gas plays as part of the future energy mix.

Before Li Yalan assumes the role of president, she will serve the IGU as vice president when Joo-Myung Kang of Korea will assume the presidency of the IGU following the World gas conference in Washington D.C., in June 2018.
