President and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Chamber of Commerce to Address Economic Club

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 12, 2013) - Powerful forces are transforming the global economic landscape and are challenging Canada's prospects in the world. A 2012 World Economic Forum report ranked Canada 14th in global economic competitiveness-down two places from 2011 and sliding five places since 2009. Improving Canada's competitiveness requires an ambitious, aggressive and innovative private sector. Strategic thinking and smart public policies are also needed to address long-standing structural impediments that hinder businesses at a time when they need much greater flexibility to compete.

Join us on February 12, 2013 for the launch of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce's Top 10 Barriers to Canadian Competitiveness. Effectively addressing these 10 barriers will sharpen Canada's competitive edge and allow us to prosper in the global economy. The need for action is urgent. The standard of living of every Canadian depends on how well we as a people respond to the challenge.
