Atlantic Report

A NS automotive industry first!

The Back Into Focus Summit Meeting held on June 24th, 2009 was an industry first.

Different industry sectors sitting across the table discussing issues common to all with an avid interest in brainstorming for solutions was indeed historic. To be in the Automotive Industry during this economic climate, all participants recognized the need and opportunity to work closer together for these common goals, opportunities and solutions.

2009 Summit participants

The Automotive Sector Council welcomes the opportunity to work with each sector in communicating out these issues to all of the automotive industry.  The Summit provided the genesis of this concept and in partnership with NSCC will facilitate another meeting to further develop the Industry Capacity building process.

The individuals that attended had lively discussion on specific issues and did agree that there was value in such a networking opportunity. A vastly improved ability to communicate key industry issues and strengthen relationships was noted and all had an interest and support for next steps.
