The Third Annual U.S.-Canada Conference will focus on the importance of strategic cross-border cooperation between the eight U.S. states and two Canadian provinces that share the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence region.
These realities can, if leveraged, turn the conventional narrative of economic decline. In this spirit, the U.S.-Canada Conference 2012 hopes to identify ways to:
- Increase the collaboration across the border;
- Ensure the prosperity and sustainability of the region;
- Devise policy measures to tackle the region's challenges;
- Capitalize on its significant opportunities.
