Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) recently signed an agreement with the Economic Developers Council of Ontario (EDCO) to increase cooperation and coordination in support of Ontario manufacturers. The province-wide Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) sets out terms for greater collaboration between the two organizations.
The intent is to share information and cross-promote opportunities to better engage manufacturers, but it’s also a chance to better connect economic development personnel with manufacturers to grow this important sector.
EDCO is an organization which provides leadership to enhance the professional development of its members; advance economic development as a profession, and support municipalities in fostering economic prosperity in the province of Ontario.
CME is Canada’s largest trade and industry association, and the voice of manufacturing and global business in Canada. Its mission is to help Canadian manufacturers and exporters compete and win in domestic and global markets by leveraging their leadership, expertise, connections, and the strengths of their membership
This collaborative effort will bring together two channels of support to fulfill a common mission; unearthing ways to share information and resources to assist manufacturers in need of the combined business services of both bodies.
The desire of these two groups to create value added change for manufacturers is a step forward in building solid relationships with producers while looking for more ways to become part of the business solution.
