The Port of Vancouver: National powerhouse, purposefully local
Back-to-back record years at the Port of Vancouver highlight the critical—and growing—role the Port of Vancouver is playing in Canada's trade future, as U.S. protectionism and Canada's recent Trans-Pacific trade deal help drive trade with Asia, Latin America and beyond.
With trade through the port projected to keep growing, and as Metro Vancouver prepares to welcome an anticipated million new inhabitants by 2050, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is investing in road and rail improvements, as well as efficiency, environmental and community-oriented programs, to both scale up port capacity to meet Canada's trade needs, but also to support the region's transportation and community needs.
On Nov 19, join Robin Silvester, port authority president and chief executive officer, as he talks about the increasing opportunities Canada's largest port is attracting to the region; the port authority's community-focused approach that considers local needs in tandem with Canada's trade goals; and the barriers to growth that could constrain the port's future, and diminish the benefits this national asset is bringing to our region. Moderated by Hayley Woodin, Reporter, Business in Vancouver.
