CFA Society Winnipeg invites you to a special presentation with Eric Olson who will cover a broad range of inputs and factors that impact businesses provincially and nationally.
With an estimated total impact on Manitoba's GDP of 12% and circa 5 billion in total farm cash receipts, the broad effect of agriculture and commodities on Manitoba businesses cannot be exaggerated. In 2011, agri-food processing was the largest manufacturing sector with 3.6 billion in sales representing 23.2% of total manufacturing output. According to an estimate by The Government of Manitoba, 1 in 10 jobs depends on direct and indirect spin-offs from agriculture.
Eric Olson will use his detailed industry knowledge to relate the tangible influence that commodity prices and agri-production may have on your bottom line. Whether your business, clients, or customers are directly impacted by agri-business; we are all impacted through the knock-on effect that industry trends and cycles have on the broader economy. Eric will discuss such topics as production trends and business environment consequences, the likely outcome of a weaker Canadian Dollar, as well as trends in employment and plant & equipment investment.
