You may not think of Canada as a major player in Charlotte and North Carolina's economy. But North Carolina sells more goods to Canada than to any other foreign country in the world. And hundreds of thousands of North Carolina jobs depend on trade with Canada. Here in Charlotte, there are 71 Canadian firms operating and 10 US headquarters for Canadian companies. We'll be joined by the Canadian Ambassador to the US to talk about Charlotte and North Carolina's relationship with Canada, as well as the United States' close relationship with our neighbor to the north when it comes to defense, economy and trade, energy and the environment, when Charlotte Talks.
Gary Doer - Ambassador of Canada to the United States
