BE PART OF

SOMETHING BIG

This unique event offers Indigenous communities and businesses effective education on international inter-tribal trade and investment. The conference brings Indigenous business representatives and Indigenous economic development officers together with international experts in Indigenous trade law.

Traders and experts come together to plan and participate in a global flow and exchange of Indigenous goods, services and investments. During the Conference, leading experts in the fields of trade law, International trade finance, supply logistics and Indigenous history will stand side-by-side with authorities from Indigenous business and tribal economic development, to identify challenges and solutions in key areas such as Indigenous International trade provisions, the Jay Treaty, NAFTA, Canada/USA border crossing for Indigenous trade, and developing real Indigenous trade opportunities between New Zealand, Canada and the United States.

Conference proceedings will be available, allowing interested parties access to the expert research, ideas, proposals and solutions. Everyone with an interest in igniting a global Indigenous economy is cordially invited to attend.
