On the heals of major announcements by OEMs seeking greater control over parts of the supply chain, I see this as an opportunity for our nations’ leaders to action strategy and bolster North America’s global competitiveness while lessening its reliance on foreign competition.”
The government led summit will convene dignitaries, government officials and key stakeholders from various countries to promote Canada’s critical minerals strategy and value proposition with an outlook to encourage cooperation and collaboration on fully integrated bilateral critical mineral supply chains over the next two years and beyond.
The meeting is expected to result in:
- Promotion of key critical minerals strengths that could be realized in the short term;
- Agreement on where are the greatest needs to provide security of supply for the clean energy transition over the next 2 years and beyond;
- Understand the industry “asks” to Canada and U.S. governments to accelerate development;
- Present GoC “asks” to US government in conversations on the margins of the event;
- Highlight this as a team Canada priority with substantive involvement from provinces;
- Introduce and connect exciting projects to new set of potential investors.
Smith has also been invited to attend the SAFE Summit being held in Washington DC. The SAFE Summit will convene top government officials, business leaders, and other stakeholders from the United States and allied nations to address the challenges to achieving secure and reliable supply chains in the transportation and energy sectors. Over two days, discussions will focus on next steps to seize the historical moment provided by significant new resources and authorities enacted through the Inflation Reduction Act and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. It will advance practical solutions to achieve the nation’s transportation electrification goals. This multi-day summit will not only create the space for dialogue, but also for actionable next steps; it will be a place to ask how to achieve these goals and get beyond the why.
