Tuesday, January 31, 2017 @ 5:45 AM

Prince George, B.C.-  Today marks the start of the Premier’s Natural Resource Forum in Prince George.

This is the 14th year for the  forum which draws delegates from  a broad  section of natural resource development.   The event kicks off this   afternoon with a  Tradeshow reception,   followed by  a special  dinner.

Tomorrow,  the real work  begins with panel discussions  on  Natural Gas,  forestry,  Energy,  and mining.    The  keynote address  at  Wednesday’s lunch will be delivered by Premier Christy Clark.

Thursday,  the forum’s panel discussions looks to the future,  with  finances  and  resource diversification   in the spotlight.

It is expected the  recent changing of the guard in  the United States will be a topic brought forth  as  President Trump wants to  renegotiate the NAFTA agreement,  and there is still no softwood lumber agreement in place.
