Sir Terence Matthews, CATA National Spokesperson delivered a keynote at the Industry Canada conference on "Canada's Digital Economy: Moving Forward"


"Canada had significant early success with its "Connecting Canadians" agenda, including putting in place the necessary policy and statutory provisions to encourage digital commerce and protect citizen privacy…But more recently, we seem to be standing still ---- parked on the side of the information highway, while other nations pass us by, at a time when the underlying technologies that make the 'Digital Economy' possible are changing and growing faster than ever before. Clearly, we need to 'get back in the race', if this country is to maximize its benefits from the 'Digital Economy'"

Please review, Mr. Matthews commentaries on Canadian Flagships, the SRED Tax Credit system, Venture Capital Funding, IRAP, Capital Cost Allowance, Trained Personnel, Organizational Collaboration.
