Thank you to all who attended this event, the first of our new series;
TJCS Canada Means Business .

The Canadian Consul for Nagoya, Allan Edwards gave an informative presentation on the history of Japan/Canada international trade relations and the latest on Free Trade talks between our two great nations. As well he discussed the current global meltdown and the theories on why Canada has weathered the storm better compared to other G20 nations due to a strong banking sector and more conservative approach to the money markets.

The presentation was well attended and lasted right up to the 8:30 event closing time. Attendees enjoyed the entertaining, yet poignant discussion which was followed with a Q & A.

We hope to see you soon at the next speaking event on November 5th, details coming soon!


" Very informative! ... Allan's presentation on Free Trade helped open my eyes to my own country!! "
