Speaker(s)
The Honourable Christy Clark, Premier, The Province of British Columbia

On March 11&12, join British Columbia Premier Christy Clark along with business and government leaders from India and BC for a close look at our growing trade relationship with India. BC companies can learn how to take advantage of the many emerging export and investment opportunities. The BC-India Global Business Forum will feature expert speakers, insightful panels and networking receptions.

Honourable Christy Clark
Premier, Province of British Columbia

On behalf of the Province of British Columbia, I am pleased to invite you to the BC-India Global Business Forum. This will be the largest forum ever of its kind, bringing together top government officials and business executives involved in the growing trade between our two markets.

British Columbia has been working hard to expand our engagement with India. One of our top priorities is strengthening our existing partnerships and creating a business-friendly environment in which organizations from both India and B.C. can flourish.

The forum will create greater awareness of British Columbia’s advantages as a trading partner and destination for investment. By exploring mutually beneficial opportunities in each other’s markets and key sectors, the forum will provide B.C. companies with an opportunity to learn how to benefit from India’s fast-growing economy.

I look forward to seeing you there.
