The NECBC also has a periodic newsletter, called "Connections", which reports on Council activities and provides information on Canada, the provinces, and cross-border trade and investment trends.  It informs readers of business opportunities, upcoming events, and activities of other Council members.  Past editions are posted in this section.














On August 12-13, Vermont Governor Phil Scott hosted the 42nd Conference of the New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers in Stowe, VT. The conference explored ways in which innovations in technologies, investments, and effective processes can grow economic opportunities in the region.  Panel discussions delved into such issues as energy storage, electric vehicles, and NAFTA and the U.S.-Canada trade relationship. Jon Sorenson, NECBC president, was pleased to moderate the discussion on trade. The leaders also met privately with Canada’s Ambassador to the U.S., David McNaughton, and the U.S. Ambassador to Canada, Kelly Craft. Premier Brian Gallant said that New Brunswick will host the next annual meeting in September 2019 in Saint John.
