Geopolitics & Trade: Shifting Markets – Impacts on Western Canada's Economy & Transportation Network
Apr 29, 2015 – Apr 30, 2015
Given current unsettling and dramatic changes in the world economy, this forum will seek to build better understanding of the larger geopolitical and global economic trends impacting trade – key factors in big picture due diligence.
The forum will begin with an overview of the major geopolitical forces. This conversation will set the stage for analysis of what these trends mean for Western Canada’s most significant trading partners, and as a result, our commodity and energy products.
The forum will conclude with a facilitated discussion on what, if any, significant shifts in trade flows and transportation networks could result from the previously identified global events.
