A Pivot to Asia: Canada’s “Real” Globalization

September 7, 2012

This Policy Options article belongs as part of NSI’s ongoing research focus on emerging markets, their impacts on other developing countries (South-South relations), and the implications for Canadian policy-makers. More specifically, the preparation of the article is timed with a conference that took place September 24-25 2012 called, ‘Canada in the Pacific Century’ that aimed to raise the profile of Canada-Asia relations by addressing key policy issues surrounding this multi-faceted relationship with the Asia region. The conference was organized by the Canadian Council of Chief Executives (CCCE), and most of the conference’s speakers  made contributions to Policy Options’ September issue.
