In the context of strengthening cooperation between the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC) and Oxford Institute for Energy Studies (OIES), the OIES has granted permission to OAPEC to translate into Arabic language the summary and recommendations of studies and papers issued periodically by the Institute. The General Secretariat extends its sincere thanks to OIES for granting OAPEC this permission, and aspires that the translation will serve its purpose.
