There are many aspects of B.C.’s economy, with high-tech companies and tourism in the forefront, that are well grounded and have bright futures. More than for the rest of Canada, though, there is also much that is uncertain, leading to spillover implications for capital investment spending.
Weak world trade has been holding back commodity price increases. Also, firms in the forestry, mining and oil and gas sectors must work harder to bolster their relationships with the peoples of First Nations, given the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on the land tile claims of the Tsilhqot’in community.
Victoria’s dreams of world-scale LNG terminals and shipping lanes in the northwest corner of the province are threatened with severe competition from similar start-ups in other countries. B.C.’s carbon tax is winning praise from experts, but its success isn’t easing the way for pipeline proponents to gain welcoming approvals.
B.C.’s unique geographic position makes the province Canada’s gateway to China, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, India and other Asian nations. The opportunities for mega engineering projects are enormous, but potential roadblocks are formidable.
CanaData’s B.C. Construction Forecasts Conference will examine how to achieve a brand of prosperity that fosters both efficiency and important social goals.
