APF Canada is excited to share that our friends at Canada West Foundation and the Institute for Peace & Diplomacy are co-hosting the third annual Indo-Pacific Strategy Forum (IPSF), the largest and most comprehensive conference on Canada’s defence and trade engagement in the Indo-Pacific. The IPSF 2023 will feature 45 expert speakers from Canada, the U.S., and the Indo-Pacific region over two days (December 4-5, 2023).
What to expect:
- Diverse participation: 150 participants, encompassing federal and provincial government officials, academics, business leaders, the foreign diplomatic corps, and key stakeholders from the Indo-Pacific region.
- In-depth discussions: Delve into critical topics, a year after the launch of Canada's Indo-Pacific Strategy. Evaluate the strategy's implementation, explore Canada’s broader engagement with the region, and understand the perception of this engagement within the Indo-Pacific.
- Networking opportunities: Connect with policymakers, industry experts, and thought leaders in an engaging, in-person setting.
