Canada in the Global Economy– A new perspective
The presentation will examine how changes in technology, trade agreements, multi-national organizational structures and government policy have significantly altered the way firms operate; shifting from a domestic to a more global perspective. Important initiatives undertaken by Statistics Canada in response to the increasingly global nature of the economy will be highlighted. Key topics will include Canada’s trade in value-added, characteristics of Canadian exporters, activities of foreign majority-owned affiliates, and our interconnectedness to the rest of the world.
The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with experts and audience questions.
