The conference will explore the potential for the Pacific Northwest Economic Region to expand its profile and role as an integrated regional gateway to and from Asia in light of new trade and investment opportunities resulting from the expected conclusion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other trade agreements, and the growing Asian demand for energy.
