Don’t Miss Let’s Talk Exports in St. John’s, NL on April 29, 2015!

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 world economy continues to bump along, with hot spots, not-spots and a good few economies in between. Has the global economy got a case of terminal weakness, or has the slow train reached its terminus? Are plunging oil prices, currency volatility and persistent structural weaknesses key threats to nascent growth, or is the global economy gaining a firmer foothold? Is it all dependent on the US economy, or will the growth game finally catch on? And is Canada set to benefit, or will a weak domestic economy compromise our ability to grab the growth from abroad?

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.
