The Pacific Northwest Gateway to Asia: Trade, Energy and Managing Environmental Challenges

October 28, 2014   |   8 am – 5:30 pm

The Union Club of British Columbia (805 Gordon Street, Victoria)

Presented by the Canadian International Council & the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada 

This conference will explore the potential for the Pacific Northwest Economic Region (primarily British Columbia, Alberta, Washington State and Alaska) to expand its profile and role as an integrated regional gateway to and from Asia in light of new trade and investment opportunities resulting from the expected conclusion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other trade agreements, and the growing Asian demand for energy. It will also examine and make recommendations as to how the region can take advantage of growing trade opportunities in energy, commodities and other products while managing the environmental challenges associated with a significant increase in economic activity.
