TBM Symposium 13 October 2012

The Take Back Manufacturing Symposium held by the Professional Engineers of Ontario and SME was a great success and feedback was very good from those that attended.

 

 

This dynamic and informative symposium examined the importance of manufacturing to Canada’s economy and how we should revive this vital sector.

 

It provided a range of speakers and gave fresh insight into the underlying economic issues, globalization forces and industrial policies.

 

A video and pictures and copies of the material will be made available soon.
