Canada’s Consul General to New England David Alward will be speaking on this relationship in order to help Chamber executives and their member companies to learn how to successfully partner with Canadian firms and why state, regional and federal trade policies should continue ensure the smooth flow of goods and business people in an effort to strengthen both of our economies.
