JOIN THE CONVERSATION ON GLOBAL TRADE
AND INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS
FOR INCLUSIVE ECONOMIES
Amazing line-up of international and national knowledgeable speakers to address global trade and inclusive economies
As we witness anxiously the progress of the NAFTA negotiations, this panel explores whether Canada provides genuine alternatives in our international outlook and global partnerships, and whether we possess the willingness, strategic vision and capacity to effectively balance global trade and economic integration with the sustainability of local communities and the environment. This group of forward thinkers and experts will engage into a constructive and evidence-based conversation about:
- Does Canada possess an environment of genuine diversity that can be leveraged in concrete ways to effectively enhance global trade and other partnerships, particularly with Asia?
- What are the international perspectives on Canadian diversity in terms of development assistance, capacity building, governance, international trade, and the global talent pool and international connectedness?
- Where are the gaps in Canadian perceptions, willingness and capacity that constrain more effective engagement with international partners, especially in Asia?
- What practical strategies can be implemented to effectively leverage existing diversity in Canada, and enhance diverse perspectives and understanding by more Canadians to facilitate mutually beneficial international partnerships?
Moderated by Dr Daniel Muzyka
