Address to the Greater Vancouver Board of TradeAddress to the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade<div class="ExternalClass4BC25D3E4AC5454BBFE1BF33445E0E00"><p>Metro Vancouver Board Chair Sav Dhaliwal made his inaugural address to the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade on the region’s Five-Year Outlook, which includes nearly $5.5 billion worth of capital projects, and discusses key initiatives such as the Climate 2050 strategy and the Industrial Lands Task Force.</p> <p>Metro Vancouver's enviable quality of life attracts more than 35,000 people every year to the region. This growth brings challenges – from affordability to climate change, infrastructure, transit and pressure on our industrial lands – as the region strives to accommodate 2.5 million residents and many businesses across the region.</p><p>The major investments Metro Vancouver is planning over the next five years are built upon on four drivers, including regional growth, system stewardship, environment and climate change, and the regulatory and legislative environment. As the region grows, its utilities and services must keep up with the increasing demand, and these investments will help Metro Vancouver to strengthen the foundation on which the future of the region will be built. </p></div>http://www.metrovancouver.org/metroupdate/PublishingImages/issue53-vbot.jpg2019-05-30T07:00:00ZGP0|#c4dd45d8-005a-4f30-8c92-165fffce9953;L0|#0c4dd45d8-005a-4f30-8c92-165fffce9953|Issue 53;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass0F593A551D3E4DEE9CBC774E31C0AA5F"><p>​Metro Vancouver Board Chair Sav Dhaliwal made his inaugural address to the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade on the region's Five-Year Outlook, which includes nearly $5.5 billion worth of capital projects, and discusses key initiatives such as the Climate 2050 strategy and the Industrial Lands Task Force.</p></div>0
