The Conference Board of CanadaDecember 15, 2016 at 11:00 AM EST Live Webinar by Danielle Goldfarb

Canada faces a dramatically changed global economic and business context. The Canadian economy is now characterized by weak domestic growth, uncertainty over the direction of the U.S. economy, and moderating but steady growth in emerging markets.

Danielle Goldfarb will provide an overview of The Conference Board of Canada’s outlook on the key trends emerging in Canada’s trade. 

Webinar participants will receive a copy of the Conference Board’s publication: What will Canada’s Trade Look Like in 2020? Canada’s Export and Import Forecast by Main Trading Partners and the opportunity to learn more about the Canadian Interactive Trade Forecast. The Interactive Trade Forecast provides interactive charts which portrays trends in Canadian exports and imports by country and type of traded goods and services. 

Webinar Highlights

During this webinar, Danielle will discuss many of the key trends shaping business and policy decisions, such as: 

  • The rise of US and global protectionism and where Canada fits in 
  • The slowdown in the world economy and the impact on Canadian trade 
  • How data and services are the most dynamic parts of global trade 
  • The global green opportunity 
  • The trend towards selling locally, not just via exports
  • The China opportunity
