The Canadian Chamber of Commerce is holding its annual International Trade Day on June 2nd, 2011 where two very important international trade initiatives will be discussed: the Canada-U.S. Shared Vision for Perimeter Security and Economic Competitiveness announced by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President Barack Obama to facilitate and secure the legitimate flow of people and goods across the shared border and the negotiation of a Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between Canada and the EU – the most ambitious negotiations undertaken by Canada.
These initiatives receive widespread support, but also generate some questions. Come hear the answers for yourself, from distinguished government, business and opinion leaders who are at the forefront of Canada’s international trade and investment initiatives.
The keynote address, entitled Strengthening our Ties: Building a More Successful Canada-U.S. Partnership, is open to press. The event will feature a conversation between Gary Doer, Ambassador of Canada to the United States of America and David Jacobson, Ambassador of the United States of America to Canada. They will discuss the steps that must be taken to strengthen Canada-U.S. relations, including cooperating on building a more efficient border. Perrin Beatty, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce will act as moderator.
