The Pacific economy is vital to Canada’s future. Quickly emerging transformations in how money moves around the world, currency trends such as Canada’s RMB settlement hub, foreign investment and trade patterns and innovation in service exports are shaping trade and investment opportunities.

Building on the success of the 2015 Pacific Finance & Trade Summit, this second annual summit, organized by CityAge and co-hosted by AdvantageBC and the Province of B.C., will bring together national and international business public sector leaders from across North America, Asia and Europe to look at the tools that will enhance Canada’s trade and finance activity in the Pacific.
