The Future of the NL Economy:
Generating Exports and Wealth
The economic news in the province is almost unremittingly bleak: low oil and mineral prices, sky-high public debt, a decline in shellfish, declining rural populations – and the list goes on. But this is only part of the story; many businesses are doing innovative work that will help diversify the economy of the province and ensure its long-term sustainability. This session highlighted industries that have potential to drive the future economy of NL. Watch the session to learn more about what’s happening in the information and communications technology; oil and gas; mining; fishery and aquaculture; and tourism and hospitality sectors.
