    他演讲的主题是:提高加拿大贸易的竞争力。 他首先概述了加拿大的出口贸易情况,介绍了加拿大出口贸易的表现以及制造业在加拿大出口贸易中所占的比重。他也承认,在加拿大制造业进出口贸易中,进口数远远高于出口,源于加拿大制造业的落后,技术滞后,设备更新慢,投入少。同时他介绍了加拿大的工业2030的战略目标,政府将要加大投入力度,争取在2030年制造业出口量翻番。随后他介绍了加拿大制造和出口的manage issue survey(MIS)的概况,以及今后五年全球市场的机会和阿尔伯塔省支持出口的基金项目。最后,他讲解了美国新任总统川普的经济政策和加拿大对此的应对政策。Mike的演讲提供了很多有用的信息,使大家很好地了解了加拿大的进出口贸易政策以及现状,未来的发展方向和投入情况,大家都感到受益匪浅。

    About Feel Foreign:

    Feel Foreign is a nonprofit organization incorporated in Canada in 2015. Our purpose is to build bridges across cultures and communities and to improve intergroup dynamics. We do this by telling the stories of real people interacting with others from different backgrounds, addressing stereotypes and discussing differences in an entertaining way. We believe empathy is an important means to improve intergroup attitudes and relations, and that telling stories through video is an effective starting point toward building empathy. Our vision is for Feel Foreign to become the “go to” organization for an empathy‐driven approach to inclusion that helps break down barriers, reach across divisions, and forge understanding.

    Additional information about Feel Foreign, including Feel Foreign “snippets” – short stories submitted by Feel Foreign followers – is available through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, as well as the organization’s website, feelforeign.com.
