Stewart Beck, President and CEO of the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, will be a guest speaker at the Pacific Finance and Trade Summit on May 24 & 25 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
The second annual Pacific Finance and Trade Summit will look at how Canadians can build the economy with a focus on important new tools in finance and trade. And how we can further develop those advantages to build business in the Pacific, with a commitment to economic growth, sustainability and global trade.
In partnership with AdvantageBC and the Province of British Columbia, the event will gather business and public sector leaders from across North America, Asia and India to look at new approaches to growing Vancouver’s, BC's and Canada’s economic activity in the Pacific Rim.
Specific topics will include: building Canada’s status as a gateway for financial and infrastructure services between the Asia Pacific and the Americas; building new markets for trade; expanding our shipping, air and technology industries; and, building our national brand and presence in the Pacific.
