On March 4, 2003, the Brookings Institution hosted a roundtable discussion on the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline project in order to facilitate a substantive, serious and constructive dialogue about the practical implications of the BTC pipeline in the Caucasus. The event brought together BP executives and consultants, as well as managers of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Company; delegations from the embassies of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey; U.S. government officials from several departments and agencies; representatives from NGOs that are concerned about the impact of the project on the Caspian and Caucasus region; prospective investors; and regional analysts.
