The increasing pace of economic globalization and integration has transformed the way nations interact and trade, creating both new opportunities and new risks. As part of this shifting competitive landscape, some countries are exercising unprecedented and aggressive strategies to protect and advance their interests—leveraging the vulnerabilities of global economic interdependence and focusing on critical supply chains and key areas of production.

This second event in the Economic Security in an Era of Global Disruption Series will examine the concepts underpinning the global economy and explore how growing competition in key areas is creating new fault lines in the global system of production and challenging long-standing assumptions related to trade, value and supply chains, and domestic frameworks. Speakers will draw on examples related to energy, critical minerals, and natural resources.

Participants will gain a deeper understanding of why Canada needs to respond to the disruptions affecting its traditional trade mindset and further protect its national security while still promoting economic prosperity.
