“CME’s Recovery Online Workshops Series leverages insights from real-world experts and manufacturers that are increasingly relevant and applicable in today’s dynamic operating environment,” says Jay Myers, CEO of NGen and former chief economist for CME.

“As an essential service, manufacturers have been on the front lines, powering the economy through the pandemic,” says Dennis Darby, President & CEO of CME. “Our partnership with NGen is an important example of how organizations can work together to create the right landscape for Canadian manufacturers to improve competitiveness and drive Canada’s manufacturing industry from crisis response to economic prosperity with access to the tools and supports they need to do so.
