Canada’s role in the global economy
Time: 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
It’s a big world out there…
Debates about Canada’s role and relative influence within the global economy are not new. These issues, however, are arguably more important – and complex – today in light of global power shifts; NAFTA re-negotiations, intensified competition among countries for access, influence and prosperity; and the struggle of multilateral institutions to both reflect and deal with these developments.
Understanding Canada’s role and place in the world today requires an assessment of several dimensions and factors, and these factors have contributed to the sweeping forces of globalization.
Transportation costs have fallen, resulting in an expansion of both the range of goods that can be exchanged and an increase in the distance over which they can be profitably traded. Advances in information and communication technologies fuel a radical change in how commerce is conducted, and drive the globalization of economic activity. As the costs of these technologies decline, firms have increasingly been able to spread their activities between and across continents.
We welcome you to join Rob Pelletier, CFA and Chief Representative, United States at Export Development Canada (EDC). Rob will be discussing the role that Canada plays in the global economy, and reviewing how the EDC supports companies in the United States.
This session promises to be informative and will provide you with the opportunity to ask questions and discuss these issues.
This seminar will take place on Wednesday October 18th, 2017 at 1525 Carling Avenue (east building) in the lower level boardroom. The seminar will begin at 6:30pm and refreshments will be served! Please send your RSVP by Wednesday October 11th to Janet Nunn by calling 613-728-0101 ext 228 or by email to email@example.com.
Your presenter: Rob Pelletier, CFA and Chief Representative, United States at Export Development Canada
Again, refreshments will be served.
I hope to see you there.
