If your company is considering expanding into international markets that may offer P3 opportunities now or in the future, meet with the people on the ground who can assist you in taking your P3 expertise global.
Trade Commissioners from the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) at Global Affairs Canada will be available for meetings during the conference to discuss P3 opportunities for Canadian companies in promising global markets. There will also be representatives from Export Development Canada and the Canadian Commercial Corporation to discuss other international opportunities. All of the Trade Commissioners will be accompanied by foreign delegations, which will afford an opportunity to interface directly with key decision makers and contracting authorities from these markets.
Attendees can learn more about the Trade Commissioners and book meetings with them and their international delegations using the P3 2019 Conference & Meeting App, when it is available in October.
For further information about the International Café, or about the services of the Trade Commissioner Service, please contact Chantel Blanchette at Chantel.Blanchette@international.gc.ca or 343-203-2215.
