APEC Business Outlook Conference November 2017

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at 7:45am-12:00pm
Location: Delta St. John's

Join APEC on November 7, 2017 for their Business Outlook Conference -  Navigating Choppy Waters: Trump, Tariffs & New Trade Deals

A revival of the softwood lumber dispute and a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement raise concerns about Canada's access to its biggest export market. Yet a major trade deal with the EU has just come into force, and Canada has begun exploratory discussions for a possible free trade agreement with China, Atlantic Canada's largest export destination after the US. And, on the domestic front, the new Canadian Free Trade Agreement took effect July 1, aimed at liberalizing Canada's internal market. What are the implications of these developments for Atlantic Canadian companies?

In a rapidly changing business environment, this morning-only  conference will focus on identifying the best opportunities at home and abroad, and the strategies needed for success.

  • APEC's exclusive economic outlook for Atlantic Canada for 2018
  • Industry leaders sharing their insights
  • A premier networking opportunity                            

Confirmed keynote speakers include Susan le Jeune d'Allegeershecque, British High Commissioner to Canada and John Parsons,  Partner, McKinsey & Company.

Business panel speakers will be  Ron Collier, VP Business Development, SubC Imaging,  Holly Hill, COO, Agile Sensor Technologies and  Kay Riggs, VP Operations, Dynamic Air Shelters.
