Description

Please join us, Wednesday, Feb 21st, 2018, when our guest speaker will be Doug Horner discussing The Critical Importance of China as a Trading Partner.

Managing risk and reward in the international marketplace is even more important if you are thinking about entering the China Market. With what is arguably the largest economy on the planet seeing significant consumer-driven growth each year, can you afford to ignore this massive opportunity? Having experienced relationships in both government and business, Mr. Horner will provide valuable insight into the potential balance to our unstable neighbour to the south - but there are significant risks, challenges, and frustrations. Is it worth it? Why is it different now than it was 20 years ago, or even five years ago? How does Alberta fit into this?

One thing is clear - it is worth it!
