Predictions 2018: Michael Sabia shares his views of the global and Canadian economies
Michael Sabia, President and Chief Executive Officer, shared his views on the coming year’s global economic issues, particularly on what to expect from the Canadian economy. He answered questions from Rob Cox, Reuters Breakingviews Global Editor, and Amra Abocar, Reuters Canada Bureau Chief, during the Predictions 2018 event organized by Reuters Breakingviews.
Accompanied by Bruce Flatt, President and Chief Executive Officer of Brookfield Asset Management, Michael gave his views on several topics, including the NAFTA negotiations. On the U.S. withdrawing from the current agreement, Michael indicated that “if that happens, my view is that is just a prelude to another negotiation.” He further notes that “we need to think about that in the context of making sure that we handle things in a way that we are well positioned for subsequent negotiation, because it’s hard to imagine that there is never another trade agreement.”false
