Global trade is now under attack and is on the verge of a dangerous trade war. New protectionist measures and tariffs are being imposed in a tit-for-tat manner. In addition, NAFTA is being renegotiated and the outcomes are uncertain. In this environment - particularly because 30% of the Canadian GDP is exports - CETA has become all the more important since it provides Canadian exporters a new market of half a billion people in 28 countries. 

This webinar will provide an overview of the Canadian macro-economy, including forecasts for the next year. The presentation will cover the latest developments and expectations for the labor market, housing, manufacturing, and monetary policy. An extended section will be devoted to CETA and its impact.

After this webinar, participants will understand

  • The outlook of the Canadian economy for the next year
  • The evolving importance and role of trade and exports
  • The impact CETA will have on businesses, and the industries poised to take advantage of the agreement.

This is a must-attend webinar for anyone who works in exports or who is interested in learning how changes in the Canadian economy and global trade will affect their business.
