APF Canada is pleased to announce a Women's Networking Roundtable focused on trade with the Indo-Pacific hosted by the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (APF Canada) and the Canadian Women's International Network (CanWIN) with support from McCarthy Tétrault and the Réseau des Femmes d'affaires du Québec. Attendance is by invitation.
When: August 31, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET
Where: Montréal, Québec
As the Indo-Pacific region has become a significant economic powerhouse, Canada is actively engaging in trade relations with this region and has recently launched a whole-of-society Indo-Pacific Strategy. Women and gender-diverse people can play a pivotal role in promoting trade and investment between Canada and the Indo-Pacific, and our roundtable is an opportunity for women and gender-diverse people from Québec to connect, share experiences and ideas, build relationships, and learn about upcoming opportunities to explore new global markets in the region.
The event will feature guest speakers who will share their insights on the Indo-Pacific region's economic landscape, as well as panel discussions on various aspects of trade with the Indo-Pacific. APF Canada will also share information about the recently launched women-only business mission to South Korea and Thailand later this year, Smarter Living: The Canadian Women-only Business Mission to South Korea and Thailand. There will also be plenty of networking opportunities with like-minded women and gender-diverse people from diverse backgrounds, industries, and organizations that support inclusive trade. A downloadable link to a simultaneous interpretation app will be shared with participants prior to the event, and the specific event location will be shared with confirmed registrants.
