Media availability - Conference Board of Canada available to comment on economic impact of Brexit

OTTAWA, June 24, 2016 /CNW/ - With the UK voting to leave the European Union, Conference Board of Canada's Chief Economist, Glen Hodgson and Deputy Chief Economist, Pedro Antunes are available to discuss the economic impact of the British exit from the EU and the implications for Canada's trade, investment, confidence and CETA.

The Conference Board expects some negative impacts on Britain's economy in the short term, such as a deterioration of  the pound, inflation and  loss of investor confidence. In Canada, the economic impact should be relatively minimal and will have more to do with uncertainty and loss of confidence.
