Edmonton Global is launching a new regional strategy that aims to attract foreign investment "in areas we know we can win," according to an article by CEO Malcolm Bruce.

"We can emerge from this crisis stronger and more globally competitive," he said. "It’s time for all Canadians to shift our mindsets and think globally."

"We can be leaders in the world’s evolving economy and the Edmonton Metropolitan Region can be a model for that potential."
