EDGE-NET 2nd Annual Conference in Vancouver

Vancouver’s weather in October is normally warm and pleasant before Halloween, but this year is not. At least in the week of October 14, it was cloudy, rainy and most unfortunately cold. The 2nd Annual Conference of EDGE-NET, predated with a series of workshops, was held on October 15. The purpose of the EDGE Network is to help Canada, as a middle power between the developed and developing countries, develop effective strategies to play a leading role in the new economic order of the 21st century.

I attended the WIPO Development Agenda Workshop and discussed with other participants about a series of 15 chapters for publication. This is my second EDGE meeting. The first one was at the end of November 2006 in Ottawa.
