Economic recovery has been a concern during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Richmond Chamber of Commerce is hosting a virtual panel discussion on Aug. 12 with some of the province’s natural resources industry leaders for a look at how to move forward economically.

“This panel (discussion) is about celebrating how interconnected our regions and economies are,” says chamber president Matt Pitcairn. “Sometimes we forget in the Lower Mainland how reliant we are on wealth generated in other parts of BC. This panel (discussion) will shed some light on how sectors like forestry, mining and LNG are creating opportunities and jobs in urban areas.”

Moderated by Val Litwin, president and CEO of the BC Chamber of Commerce, the event is free and features three panelists.

• Susan Yurkovich, president and CEO of BC Council of Forest Industries

• Bryan Cox, president and CEO of Canadian LNG Alliance

• Michael Goehring, president and CEO of the Mining Association of British Columbia

Advance registration is required. The event will take place from 9 to 10 a.m. (PST). Questions for the panelists can be emailed to mpitcairn@richmondchamber.ca by Aug. 10.
