Let’s Talk Exports is your chance to get the most up-to-date information available on what the global economy has in store for exporting businesses of all sizes, in all sectors.
“The global economic situation we’re in right now is truly unique. Volatility is making the headlines, with plunging equities, commodity prices currencies, but hand-in-hand with that turbulence is real economic growth, driven in large part by the ‘engine’ economy of the U.S.,” said Peter Hall, Vice President and Chief Economist, EDC.
Will there be an end to the commodity price plunge? Is Canada’s winning streak at an end, or are there opportunities to pursue?
“During the ‘Let’s Talk Exports’ tour I’ll break down the global economic situation and explain what it means for you, the Canadian exporter. I’ll be your personal economist for the day and respond to your questions about the dollar, interest rates, forecasts for your sector or whatever else in the economy is concerning you. There are international opportunities to be had right now for Canadian exporters, and I hope to help you find them.”
Join Peter G. Hall, Vice-President & Chief Economist at Export Development Canada, to hear answers to these and other questions about the global economy and its effects on Canada, along with forecasts of the Canadian dollar, commodity prices and growth in your industry.
