Panel Discussion: State-owned Enterprises in the Oil Sands - An Inhibitor or Contributor to the Growth and Strategic Development of the Industry?
When: 24th February, 2014, 6.30 - 8.30pm
Where: 5-40 A&B Business Building, Alberta School of Business
Foreign direct investment in the Canadian oil and gas industry is important. In recent years, significant mergers and acquisitions (M & A) by state-owned enterprises (SOEs) have led to increased concerns about the vulnerability of the industry to the priorities of foreign states.
The new federal regulatory requirements have introduced a significant degree of uncertainty. Consequently, what balance must be struck between the free flow of capital and a net benefit for Canada?
This subject has become a contentious and passionate issue for Canadians. In this light, the University of Alberta Energy Club (UAEC) and the Center for Applied Business Research in Energy and the Environment (CABREE), invite you a distinguished panel discussion taking place on the 24th of February 2014.
Sponsors: Young Professionals in Energy (YPE); CABREE, University of Alberta Student Group Services; University of Alberta Department of Mechanical Engineering; Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN).
