March 9, 2017

In 2016 the Brexit referendum, the United States presidential election and other European election campaigns have witnessed a swing towards what has been called a “Populist Movement.” Now in 2017 there is much speculation on how these 2016 political pivots will impact the global economy. Mr. Peter Hall, Chief Economist with Export Development Canada, will speak at this roundtable for heads of diplomatic missions and parliamentarians about his current analysis and how he personally approaches so much uncertainty.

The same roundtable will be offered twice on March 9, 2017, one for breakfast from 7h00-8h30 and another for lunch at 12h00-13h30. Because space is limited, please RSVP as soon as possible and we will seek to honour your time preference.
