Welcome to CAI’S quarterly newsletter
The economic landscape has never been more opportune to investment projects. In fact, the growth of real GDP is expected to reach 3% in 2017 for Canada and 2.2% for the United States, employment rates are reaching new heights since 2008 with an unemployment rate of 6.2% for the 2nd quarter, and the governments’ support to businesses is more than adequate. Currently, there are programs offering up to 50% of eligible costs related to the marketing and exportation of innovations, which greatly encourages businesses to invest in their activities. However, all of these encouraging factors combined do not suffice to offset the shadow cast by the NAFTA renegotiation which is hindering businesses’ investment plans.
For its first quarterly newsletter, the CAI Global Group (CAI) is presenting a series of three (3) short and objective reflections that should allow for a better understanding of the stakes at hand in the context of the NAFTA renegotiation for North American commercial relations and, ultimately, for the growth of businesses.
With over 30 years of experience in investment projects, strategy, financing, and site selection, the associates, Howard, Jayne, and Marc, are proud of their team’s achievements. Their continuous commitment to fulfilling the clients’ specific needs with innovative value-added solutions brings them the necessary resources and knowledge to analyse today’s business environment and to share these analyses through a newsletter.
