Global Economic Outlook: Mapping the Road Ahead

Get the economic insights you need to protect and grow your business in today’s volatile economic and political climate.
As we head into summer, the global economic outlook is acutely volatile. The conflict in Ukraine has had a magnified impact on Canadian businesses that were already reeling from the lingering effects of the global pandemic. 
It can feel like an impossible challenge to understand how your business will be impacted in a global economy being rocked by labour shortages, rising interest rates and widespread market disruption—or to know how you can protect and even grow your business in such an environment.
Stuart Bergman, EDC’s vice-president and chief economist, will provide a detailed update on the risks and opportunities you’ll face in the current economy and give you the vital insights to support your company’s continued growth at the 16th Annual ‘State of the Island’ Economic Summit, October 26 and 27.
Thank you to EDC for their Platinum Sponsorship of the Summit!
