The National Conversation on Asia: Inspiration, Initiatives & Legacy
The Public Policy Forum contributed to the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada‘s National Conversation on Asia (NCA) and lead the ‘Canada as an Asia Pacific Nation’ project.
The NCA was one of the most ambitious and successful initiatives in the Foundation’s 30-year history.
I believe the NCA made a significant difference not just by raising awareness, but also by effecting change across the country and helping to move decision-makers from the question of ‘Why Asia?’ to ‘How Asia?’ It was also transformative for the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada in terms of its profile, reach, and access to new networks and contacts. Its success underscored the Foundation as a source of trusted knowledge
and the convenor of choice in Canada on Asia.
