Ontario in the Global Bazaar
Monday September 3 at 8 pm on TVO
TORONTO, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - In June 2007 alone, Ontario lost 31,000
manufacturing jobs. So is your job at risk? Find out in Ontario in the Global
Bazaar, a timely TVO special that looks at where our province's economy is
going and whether or not we're on the right track.
Ontario in the Global Bazaar looks at who is losing out, who is winning
and why. It profiles companies that are expanding worldwide and manufacturing
workers who are seeing their jobs moved to China. The program also looks at
the island nation of Taiwan. While Taiwan saw its manufacturing sector
hollowed out a decade ago, its economy continues to be vibrant. Why?
Leading academics, including the deans of the Rotman and Ivey Schools of
Business, economist Mike Stanford of the Canadian Auto Workers Union (CAW) and
business leader Mike Lazaridis of Research In Motion (RIM) weigh in on how
Ontario can prosper in a globalized world.
