Together, strategic communications firm Creative Fire and the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada convened a roundtable on how to accelerate Indigenous business relations with Asia Pacific markets.
This first-ever meeting between Indigenous business leaders and Asia Pacific stakeholders was a first step in establishing strong nation-to-nation trade, marketing, and investment relationships between Indigenous Canada and Asia Pacific countries.
This report provides a detailed overview of the roundtable and discussion outcomes.
The roundtable concluded with a consensus around the need to reconvene, perhaps in conjunction with the World Indigenous Business Forum in Vancouver, October 2019. The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service is looking to coordinate Indigenous B2B meetings as part of the event.
