Event Description:

The Chinese renminbi has been devalued. Twice. Global stock markets responded. Badly. Economists are divided on whether Canada is in a… well, r-word… technical or otherwise.

What is a Surrey business to do? How can corporations plan for future growth when we are told that non-resource manufacturing is doing well, exports are thriving in a low-loonie climate but the cost

The Surrey Board of Trade understands the need to know. We have gathered a panel of economists and industry experts to walk you through the ups and downs of global and local economic forces, and to provide some guidance for future planning for your business or organization.
