Webinar: Making International Trade Work for Local Economic Prosperity
Thursday, March 12, 2015
12:00–1:15 p.m. EDT
Drawing on the Canadian municipal experience, this webinar promotes the idea that cities can help accelerate prosperity-enhancing development by preparing and implementing effective local economic development plans that take trade into consideration. Building on the principle that cities can "facilitate, connect and motivate", this live event will provide you an opportunity to learn about ten selected options that cities can undertake to increase their trade readiness.
This material was developed for a 3-day regional event held in collaboration with UCLG-ASPAC and OXFAM, where 70 participants from Southeast Asia considered the incidences of the regional economic integration on local development and governance.
