Excerpt: In February of 2011 the BC Government released a request for proposals to conduct a feasibility study for a British Columbia Foreign Trade Zone Program. While “Foreign Trade Zones” (FTZ) will be explored across the province, a specific proposal is being developed within the Pacific Gateway Strategy that has pushed for port and highway expansion from Delta Port throughout the lower mainland.”Foreign Trade Zones” are also referred to around the world as Free Trade Zones or Special Economic Zones.
These two events are hosted by the Council of Canadians. Both events are free.
