The Detroit Regional Chamber is hosting Translinked Supply Chain Forum: U.S. – Canada Regulatory Cooperation Council Presentation and Beyond the Border Action Plan Update on Friday, June 22 from 8:30-11:00 a.m. at the Detroit Regional Chamber offices on One Woodward Avenue in Detroit. This is certainly timely, coming on the heels of Canada’s offer to pay for the bulk of the costs for a new bridge between the US and Canada.
On the agenda is a discussion between TranslinkeD (a Detroit Regional Chamber initiative), the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Regulatory Cooperation Council’s Canadian Treasury Board Secretariat, and industry experts about how to maximize the opportunities for trade and travel through the U.S. – Canadian border.
Confirmed speakers include:
- U.S. Representative Gary C. Peters, U.S. House of Representatives (MI-9)
- Assistant Secretary Douglas A. Smith, Office of the Private Sector, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
- Keith Devereaux, Office of International Affairs/Canada, U.S. Department of Homeland Security
