October 22, 1994|IRA E. STOLL

The global information revolution's effect on the future of business, government and everyday life will be the focus of a conference in Thousand Oaks on Thursday, featuring former Vice President Dan Quayle.

Quayle is slated to speak about freedom in the 21st Century. Rep. Robert T. Matsui (D-Sacramento) is scheduled to deliver a keynote address about trade in the 21st Century during the daylong conference at the new Civic Arts Plaza.

An executive at the World Affairs Council of Ventura County said she hopes the "Passport to Tomorrow" conference will attract an international audience and bring economic benefits to the county.

"We're trying to expose people who are responsible for foreign trade all over the world to businesses that are located in Ventura County," said Cynthia Cooke, executive director of the council, which is sponsoring the conference.
