What can we do to take Ontario’s economy from a period of recovery to a state of growth?
Ontario’s economy has a growth problem. According to Ontario’s Ministry of Finance, the province’s economy will grow at a rate of only 2.1 percent in real GDP through 2035—a figure that barely exceeds growth in inflation.
It will take smart risk and collective leadership to ensure Ontario emerges stronger. That’s why at this year’s Summit we will feature game-changing approaches to reorienting Ontario’s economy from a period of recovery to state of growth. We will look at a range of ground-breaking ideas, from company-specific best practices to large-scale initiatives adopted in communities and by governments.
The 2014 Ontario Economic Summit will feature signature segments, including roundtables with Ontario Cabinet Ministers, ‘In Conversation’ with the Premier of Ontario, strategic breakout sessions, and leaders’ networking events.
About the Ontario Economic Summit
The Ontario Economic Summit (OES) supports economic growth in the province. Presented by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, the OES convenes leaders from the private and public sectors in a collaborative forum to define the solutions to Ontario’s greatest economic challenges.
Every year, Ontario’s most influential leaders gather at OES in Niagara-on-the-Lake for an unparalleled opportunity to share insights, explore partnership opportunities, and shape public policy.
The OES is a year-long initiative. Through the Economic Leadership Series, the OES engages leaders at the community-and sector-levels where they join together to define collective, action-oriented economic agendas.
