Event description

Description

What is going on with Huawei and Canola in Canada? Come talk international trade relations with the experts and enjoy drinks and appys!

Join CIC Edmonton for our last event before the summer where we'll hear from Gordon Houlden, Director of the China Institute at the University of Alberta and Karla Bergstrom, Manager of Government and Industry Affairs for Alberta Canola.

We'll learn about the political dynamics between Canada and China since the arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver and how that has affected international relations and trade. Here is your chance to get answers from the experts!

Gordon Houlden, Director of the University of Alberta China Institute, will discuss the escalating trade relations between China and Canada. He will look at the current timeline, diplomatic relations, and explore some reasons why the current country relations are escalating. Huawei’s 5G network will be discussed in terms of what has been proposed, potential impacts to Canadians, and discussions around technologies use.

Karla Bergstrom, the Manager of Government and Industry Affairs for Alberta Canola, will also present about Canada and China trade relations and strategies Alberta Canola has available to respond to the issue and work with government and industry in finding a solution.

After the panel, stay and celebrate another successful year of CIC Edmonton!
