Presentation: Competitive Landscape of BC's Natural Resource Sectors

View Jock Finlayson's presentation to the 2018 BC Natural Resources Forum on the economic contributions of resources to BC's economy - and the risks to the sectors' competitiveness.

Spoiler Alert: Resources represent 13% of BC's GDP, 77% of merchandise exports and lumber remains our largest export product. Jock notes, however, that Canada is losing ground on our competitiveness, particularly compared to the United States.
