The geopolitical situation – particularly between China and the United States – in these past few weeks has caught and held my attention like nothing else.
I'd call it understandable.
I'm currently in Singapore for Asia's annual oil and gas conference, and I'm getting an earful about the politics between my country and theirs.
Of course, the world is aware of the current state of the U.S.-China trade war. With tariffs coming from both ends, neither country is backing down.
I've discussed this in detail in many previous Oil & Energy Investor columns.
But things are getting hotter in this particular geopolitical realm.
Now, while the conference that I'm attending covers three days of intense energy-specific discussions, there are other conferences and summits going on in Asia to discuss other matters of global importance.
In particular, one that was just this past week was the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, or APEC.
