March 3, 2010
New York, New York

On March 3, 2010, the Canadian Consulate General, the investment agencies of Ontario and Quebec, and the Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment co-hosted an interactive strategy session on issues related to cross-border research collaboration in clean technologies. Companies (including IBM, GE, Trilliant and Fasken Martineau) discussed cross border greentech projects during the session, including how to harness Canada’s aggressive R&D tax incentives. Karl P. Sauvant offered opening remarks on FDI and how the financial crisis has affected cross-border investment. In the midst of the clean technology boom, he discussed the impact clean technologies will have on FDI in the coming years and the growth of cross-border collaborations.
