Beyond Condos, Immigrants and Drugs: What’s the Future of Metro Vancouver’s Economy?

Yes, there will more people and more commerce, given Vancouver’s role as a port.  But what commerce, and what can we lever from our location and infrastructure?  More exports of coal, oil and lumber to Asia?  More imported food and goods?
Or is there a different future for the region? More tech, biotech and movie growth?
What issues arise: Less agricultural land? More industrial reserves?  A second metropolitan centre? Competitive threats or unrealized opportunities?
Get the big picture from Christina DeMarco, Regional Development Manager for Metro Vancouver, and Lee Malleau, CEO of the Vancouver Economic Commission.
