A Changing Economic Order: New realities, new models

A Changing Economic Order: New realities, new models

17th annual conference - Hilton Montreal Bonaventure Hotel - June 6 to 9, 2011

A changing economic order: New realities, new models. The overall theme of this 17th International Economic Forum of the Americas – Conference of Montreal, is an opportunity to take stock of a still fragile global recovery. Thanks to some 150 speakers and 2,500 participants from all over the world, we will put in perspective the new economic realities that are forcing us to rethink the development of our planet’s resources, using a model that is more sustainable and fair.

I would like to extend my warm thanks to our speakers who have come to share their thoughts on the larger issues related to the current transition from crisis. I also wish to thank our sponsors and partners, in particular the governments of Quebec and Canada, for their crucial support for the completion of an international event of this scope.

I hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you in Montreal this June, from the 6th to 9th, to attend this 17th Conference of Montreal. The Conference team will do its very best to ensure you have an enjoyable and fruitful stay.

Enjoy the Conference!

Gil Rémillard
Founding Chairman
