The Ontario government will hold a number of meetings with key members of the plastics industry in order to ascertain ways to make companies more competitive in the global marketplace, according to Jim Flaherty, Minister of Enterprise, Opportunity and Innovation.
The format of the meetings will be a series of roundtable discussions with representatives from plastics firms, industry experts and associations from across the province. The meetings, which will be chaired by Doug Galt, parliamentary assistant to the Minister, will seek to identify the main competitive challenges facing the industry, and will be held over the next several months.
"This is a real coup for the province’s plastics industry," said Faris Shammas, executive director, Ontario CPIA.
