ABOUT THE EVENT
Southeast Asia offers innumerable opportunities for Canadian infrastructure firms, as countries in the region work to meet urgent requirements. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Asian Development Bank stated that the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) needed to invest over CAD 3 trillion in infrastructure projects to spur growth. Now, despite the impact of the pandemic, infrastructure has been heralded as one of the key drivers for economic recovery by countries in the region – an opportune time for Canadian companies to get in on the ground floor with support from the Government of Canada.
In a proactive effort to connect Canadian infrastructure firms with relevant, high value opportunities in Southeast Asia, Trade Team Canada, working with the Canada-ASEAN Business Council and Tractus Asia, would like to invite a select group of companies to the Team Canada Southeast Asia Infrastructure Forum being held virtually from June 28 to 30. As one of Canada’s Business, Economic, and Trade Recovery (BETR) initiatives seeking to support a robust economic recovery and longer-term inclusive growth, the Forum will connect participants to key infrastructure opportunities in Thailand, the Philippines, and Indonesia.
