On October 24th, the Border Policy Research Institute will host a one day policy forum on cross-border collaboration, with a focus on three topical areas: transportation & infrastructure planning, business integration, and transboundary environmental cooperation. We will discuss the state of regional cross-border collaboration in these areas and identify avenues to advance these efforts, as well as barriers that currently exist.
This forum is particularly timely given the current political atmosphere and state of U.S.-Canadian affairs, which has only heightened the importance of stronger cross-border collaboration. Individuals from government, private sector, and academia will be in attendance. This one day forum will be hosted at Western Washington University from 8:30am-3:30pm.
