B.C. Innovation and Technology: Building long term B.C. competitiveness post pandemic
The global health pandemic has demonstrated the resilience of Greater Vancouver’s gateway sector, as operators maintained the fluidity of supply chains critical to the health, safety and economic vitality of British Columbia. The challenges of the last year have also provided an opportunity to accelerate efforts to decarbonize the transportation sector and make meaningful progress on climate targets. This event will explore how innovation and technology underpin the resilience of Greater Vancouver’s transportation sector, the technologies and plans evolving transportation as we know it and the innovative B.C. businesses that are bringing cutting edge transportation solutions to the world.
