Peter Hall, VP and Chief Economist with Export Development Canada, To Speak at Economic Summit

Vancouver Island is ‘on the map’ for international trade and export. Our Foreign Trade Zone designation (FTZVI) has increased global awareness of Vancouver Island as a source of export products and as a destination for foreign direct investment. And EDC has recently opened an office in Victoria.

Mr. Hall’s presentation will focus on global trade and emerging prospects for Vancouver Island exports.

“Peter is no stranger to Vancouver Island and always brings with him views from Canada and the World that have direct impact on Vancouver Island business.” – Bill Collins, Query Capital Corp.

Peter Hall joined Export Development Canada (EDC) in 2004. With over 25 years of experience in economic analysis and forecasting, Mr. Hall is responsible for overseeing EDC’s economic analysis, country risk assessment and corporate research groups. In addition to preparing strategic advice for senior management at EDC, Mr. Hall is a featured speaker at conferences, international roundtables and policy fora, and regularly appears in television, radio and print media commenting on the world economy and Canadian international trade issues. He produces a widely circulated print and video weekly commentary covering an eclectic range of current global economic issues.

The 2019 Economic Summit is October 23/24 at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.
