July 7, 2020 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am
Niagara Community Observatory, Brock University

The Niagara Community Observatory invites you to join us Tuesday, July 7 for a virtual presentation of our latest policy brief Niagara’s Transportation and Logistics Sector: Becoming a Global Economic Lynchpin, by NCO Director Charles Conteh.

The presentation runs from 9:30 am to 11 am and will be conducted online via Microsoft Teams. A link to the event will be sent out the day before, to all who have registered.

The transportation and logistics (T&L) sector is a strategic economic sector in Niagara given the region’s role as one of the key arteries in Canada’s interprovincial and international trade flows.

As the North American and global economy undergoes earthshaking transformations across several fronts, the fundamental question that Niagara must address is whether it is fully leveraging its assets to not only weather the storms of change but also exploit new and emerging opportunities.

Following in the footsteps of his previous research on the manufacturing, agriculture, and ICT sectors, Dr. Conteh uses industry data provided in partnership with Niagara Economic Development to examine this question, focusing on the trends, strengths, and challenges.

The presentation will be followed by a panelist discussion and open Q&A.

Registration is required through cphillips3@brocku.ca
