The Great Lakes St. Lawrence Governors & Premiers 2016-2017 Annual Report is now available. Over the past twelve months, the Governors and Premiers propelled a forward-looking agenda to grow the region’s $6 trillion economy and protect the world’s greatest freshwater system. Together they collaborated with key partners to expand international trade and tourism, and support industry clusters including maritime transportation. The Governors and Premiers also led the region’s work to protect and restore the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Basin. These initiatives continue to successfully build consensus toward these shared goals with partners in government, industry and the nongovernmental sector.
