and regions located in specific areas of the world are forging new cooperative arrangements.

of the participating countries and regions, thus increasing the economic benefits
and the overall quality of life for the citizens of the individual countries and regions.
The legislature also finds that the Pacific Northwest states of Alaska, Idaho, Montana,
Oregon, and Washington and the Canadian provinces of Alberta and British Columbia
are in a strategic position to act together, as a region, thus increasing the overall
competitiveness of the individual states and provinces that will provide substantial
economic benefits for all of their citizens.
