Minister Bains spoke about several of the programs and initiatives the government is undertaking before opening the floor to questions and comments. Chamber members raised access to capital and talent as two of the most critical ingredients needed to make our economy grow. The needs for smart infrastructure spending and suggestions on NAFTA were also brought up. Collaboration came up many times in the conversation, and how by working together we can make great things happen here. A prime example of that is the proposed EMILI supercluster.
It was a productive discussion with the federal “Minister of Everything” and The Winnipeg Chamber looks forward to continuing the dialogue on how to grow our economy.
