Public policy is at its best when it is a result of disciplined and educated dialogue between the private and public sectors. Every November, government and industry leaders of the world’s democracies gather in Halifax, Nova Scotia for three days to develop strategies to strengthen security and expand opportunities and prosperity for their citizens.
n recognition of the important contribution to mutual education on strategic issues between the public and private sectors, the Government of Canada and MEG Energy announced in August 2012 the creation of the Club HFX — a permanent body for the private sector to support the work of Halifax International Security Forum. Together, this public-private partnership of the Government of Canada and Club HFX will ensure that the Halifax International Security Forum’s fundamental mission to build greater international security and global prosperity will continue to grow.
