The Homeland Security and Canada-U.S. Border Trade: Implications for Public Policy and Business Strategy conference was hosted in part by the Center for International Business Studies at Mays Business School at Texas A&M University. About 120 business executives, government officials, and academics attended the conference, which was held in Windsor, Ontario in October 2007.

The presenters discussed the challenges of keeping the world’s longest undefended border open to trade but closed to terrorists. The goal of the conference was creating greater cooperation between nations, and fully engaging people in the public and private sectors in security efforts, constructive policy action, and meaningful research.
