MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Economic experts are calling 2010 – 2020 the Low Growth Decade. Chronically high unemployment in the United States, slowing growth in a number of other countries, an aging infrastructure and a lack of business confidence are holding back companies from investments in their North American operations.
But there are signs of a recovery in America’s housing sector, a major driver of growth, in the automotive industry and in other key sectors of the economy. How will these forces play out? How will they affect your company? Find out at this year’s Surface Transportation Summit to be held October 16th at the Mississauga Convention Centre.
