Hello, Allow me to introduce Vancouver International Trade Institute (VITI). Established September 2015, our core focus is academic in nature. We are launching two self-introducing journals this year: Vancouver International Trade Journal (VITJ) and Vancouver Journal of Law and Legal Studies (VJLLS). We are also offering professional services, and soon courses, in arbitration and international dispute resolution. Below you will find our esteemed Advisors, Reviewers and Editors who have established themselves in industry and academia around the world. They bring their years of experience and acquired wisdom and join us in our journey only in search of more. We are positioned to ride out on the Trans Pacific Partnership discussion then tackle some of the most difficult topics in international trade relations. Browse our platform, then join us for the ride! Sincerely,
Md. Anowar Zahid
Director, Vancouver International Trade Institute
Dr. Anowar Zahid (National University of Malaysia)

"Fortune Favours the Bold"
We've just turned the corner into 2016. Our resolution this year was to take some chances. Many of you perhaps have listed this too? For tradition's sake? Or perhaps you've given up on resolutions by now. No matter, we offer you a chance to reignite that will power, a chance to check one resolution off the list! At the very least, you'll get a rush watching others take the step as we tackled controversial and unconventional topics this 25/2. Trans Pacific Partnership The deals are done and now the jury's out. There's immense political, social and economic pressure around this deal and it foreshadows twins across the Atlantic. Is it really as make-or-break as it's made out to be? What do the facts say? Join the debate and hear from experts! International Dispute Resolution Following right on the heels of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), we dare to churn it's most contentious chapter. Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) is right up our street. By-passing of the Justice system has riled many. It's time we put it on trial! Cultural Exchange TPP or not, Vancouver will always be Canada's access to Asia. We have expertise here, and moreover, the diversity to facilitate transnational trade. Let’s boil it down to the essence of our identities and brands through story, and connect with each other to harness Vancouver's great diversity. For peace and enterprise. Financial Markets We can't talk about trade without talking of money! We bring you, not just any money, but new money! As you explore the Pacific, it'll only be a matter of time before Islamic Finance hits your ears. We thought we'll just bring it right to you. Turn the corner and we get you Blockchain Fintech too! It's a bit of a mouthful, but if you've heard of Bitcoin, you'll want to hear of this!
