On October 24, 2012, the Vancouver Board of Trade hosted a one day forum to discuss how the new Beyond the Border and Regulatory Cooperation initiatives, announced by Prime Minister Harper and President Obama in December 2011, will improve the border. The plans set out practical targeted measures and implementation timelines designed to make the Canada-US border more secure and efficient.
