TORONTO, Ont. -- An Export Development Canada report suggests Ontarios exports will decline next year.


TORONTO, Ont. — An Export Development Canada report suggests Ontarios exports will decline next year.

The report says Ontarios export growth will remain stagnant in 2006 and will drop 3% in 2007.

The struggles of the automotive, consumer goods and forestry sectors are to blame, according to the report. A strong Canadian dollar, excess capacity and increased global competition have also contributed.

Stephen Poloz, vice-president of the EDC says exports of autos and parts will be down 5% by the end of 2006, with another decline of 6% expected next year.

Canadas economic growth is forecast to remain stable at 2.8% in 2006 and 2.4% in 2007, the report says.
