  OTTAWA, Jan. 14 /CNW Telbec/ - In less than two months, the Assembly of
First Nations will be hosting the largest-ever Indigenous economic development
conference in Canada. The Inter-Nation Trade and Economic Summit (INTES) will
be held March 9-11, 2009 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
    "In these uncertain economic times, First Nations have the potential to
make an enormous contribution to renew and revitalize the North American
economy," said National Chief Phil Fontaine. "With a growing land base and the
fastest growing segment of the Canadian population, we are positioned to be
major players in regional and national economic development."
    INTES will bring together First Nations and Indigenous leaders and
business communities, key players in Corporate Canada, international
stakeholders, federal and provincial ministers, and economic development
experts. This major event will examine and promote economic growth and
well-being in key economic regions.
