OPEC Postpones Meeting
Monday, February 26, 2001
The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has postponed a top-level seminar on oil markets, originally scheduled for March, until later in the year. The seminar, "OPEC and the global energy balance: towards a sustainable energy future," was to be held in Vienna the two days before the March 16 meeting of oil ministers in which they are to discuss output policy for the next few months.
"It will be postponed because a various ministers are not going to be able to attend," OPEC Secretary-General Ali Rodriguez told Reuters. Another OPEC official said the seminar was tentatively rescheduled for September. - (Reuters)
