EDMONTON - Premier Alison Redford says experts will have a chance to hash out Alberta's budget problems on Feb. 9 in Calgary.

That's when Redford plans to hold an economic summit at Mount Royal University.

She says in a news release that it's an opportunity to brainstorm solutions to the province's reliance on energy revenues.

Last week, Redford said falling oil prices in the U.S. market will take a $6-billion bite out of Alberta's bottom line next year.

She says now is the time to figure out ways to improve spending and figure out ways to get Alberta off the roller-coaster of volatile energy revenues.

The summit is to feature several moderated panels; names of participants are to be confirmed in the coming days.
