U.S.-Canada Partners in Commerce, Competing Together

March 2, 2015
The United States and Canada are no longer competing against each other, but together. Trade between the two countries is important now more than ever, especially as the New International Trade Crossing (NITC) construction moves forward. In the session, “Partners in Commerce: The U.S.-Canada Opportunity,” panelists discussed how the United States and Canada need to continue to collaborate and explore the future together to stimulate the local economy.

The panel included: Frank Ervin, director of government affairs at Magna International Inc.; Douglas George, consul general of Canada; Matt Marchand, president and CEO of the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce; and Paul Traub, senior business economist at the Detroit branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. The session was moderated by Mark High, president of the Canada-United States Business Association and partner at Dickinson Wright PLLC.
