Revive Trade, Fuel Growth

April 7, 2015 | By |

Global and local economic and trade experts offer insights on how international trade can serve as a catalyst for business growth in Canada

The Canadian economy, like that of its counterparts around the world, is more globally integrated than ever before. As the economy has become more global, international trade has become even more crucial to growth.

As the Canadian economy struggles to recover from the Great Recession, an increased focus on international trade can help fuel growth. In the first quarterly webinar in HSBC’s “Fueling Growth Worldwide” series, experts in global trade and Canadian economics discussed how trade can help boost the domestic economy and how Canadian businesses can facilitate that growth by capitalizing on current international trade opportunities.
