New Opportunities in Trade for 2009
Canada remains the largest and most vital trade partner with US and a big source for oil and gas. Their relationship with Texas and Houston in particular is thus strategically important to our region, vital for trade with small and mid-sized businesses, allowing them access to a great market in Calgary, Canada's oil and gas center, and across Canada as well as offshore Canada's East coast. MR Pettis will discuss other relevant opportunites and challenges ahead in 2009 for Canada - US relations vital to our region.
Mr. Pettis is proud to have been selected to lead a group of seasoned professionals in representing Canada's interests in a dynamic region of the United States that includes Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas.
