Canadian official to talk about trade, security, environment issues
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Canadian Consul General Roy B. Norton will discuss trade and other issues Feb. 21 during the Purdue Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) Global Management Forum.
Norton will speak on "Canada and Indiana: Partners in Trade, Security, Energy and More." The program, from 2-4 p.m. in Rawls Hall 3082, also will include a question-and-answer session and a reception.
Indiana exports more to Canada than to its next seven largest export markets combined. In addition to trade, Norton also will discuss North American and global security; Canada's role as the largest U.S. energy supplier; and shared management of the environment, particularly in the Great Lakes region.
Norton, who is based in Detroit, represents Canada in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky. Until August 2010, he served as minister for congressional, public and intergovernmental relations at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, D.C.
He has master's degrees from Carleton University and Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and master's and doctorate degrees from Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies.
Norton's speech is free and open to the public. However, seating is limited, so those planning to attend are asked to RSVP to email@example.com
The lecture is sponsored by CIBER, Krannert School of Management, and the College of Liberal Arts' Department of Political Science.
