SESSION SYNOPSIS: APF Canada and Rotman are delighted to welcome noted journalist and author Dr. Fareed Zakaria who will be the featured guest of a lecture and discussion to mark the launch of APF Canada’s John H. McArthur Distinguished Fellowship.  Dr. Zakaria is the first Fellow. His observations will come on the heels of the inauguration of President-Elect Trump on January 20, amid the continued rising economic and geopolitical salience of Asia, and the prospect of a more complicated stance on global trade.  In 2015, The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (APF Canada) established the John H. McArthur Distinguished Fellowship to honour Dr. McArthur, an outstanding Canadian, world-renowned business educator and Chair of the APF Canada Board for almost a decade.  A native of Burnaby, BC, Dr. McArthur was Dean of Harvard Business School (HBS) from 1980 through 1995, Senior Advisor to the President of the World Bank (1995-2005) and a founding board member of the Canada Development Investment Corporation.
