The "Encounter"  is a platform created by The Chamber to engage the Business Community in serious discussions on important issues and the impact on their operations. This assembly is an interactive two hour forum, which will allow for Chamber members to engage in constructive exchange with specific leaders and those who influence change. The meeting takes the format of presentations from panelists, who present differing perspectives. This format is uniquely important as it creates friendly debate and brings to the fore controversial questions which ordinarily would not have a forum to be addressed.
