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, in the automotive industry and in other key sectors of the economy. How will these forces play out over the next 12 months?
Find out at our Surface Transportation Summit this October 16th at the Mississauga Convention Centre.
in a dynamic session moderated by editorial director Lou Smyrlis, expect to gain key insights as Carlos Gomes, senior economist with Scotiabank and one of Canada’s leading economists, provides the economic overview and shares his analysis on where the economy is going in 2014.
Also on the panel are Doug Munro, president and owner of Maritime-Ontario Freight Lines Limited and its Group of Companies, .one of Canada’s largest and most successful trucking companies, and Charles Clowdis, managing director, North American Markets for IHS Global Insight, a much respected US-based consultancy. They will share their insights on the direction of the Canadian and US economies in 2014 and the implications for shippers and transportation providers as they prepare their business plans.
