TORONTO, Feb. 4, 2019 /CNW/ - KPMG in Canada will be releasing "The State of Canada's auto sector: Recalculating the Route Ahead" to coincide with this year's Canadian International Auto Show.
While disruption is familiar grounds for Canada's automotive industry, the decision by General Motors to close its Oshawa plant brings into sharp focus the effects global restructuring, shifting consumer trends and an auto-tech revolution now underway. In uncertain times, how can Canada's auto industry adapt and prepare for the auto sector of the future? How are domestic and international trends reshaping the roles of original equipment manufacturers and their suppliers?
As sponsor of Media Day at the auto show, KPMG will explore these issues and support an informed discussion with key stakeholders. These insights will draw on KPMG's 20th Global Automotive Executive Survey, an annual survey of 3000 auto exec and consumers on what's next in the automotive industry.
