Ken Peacock, the chief economist and vice president of the Business Council of British Columbia, was on hand at the recent CanaData West conference in downtown Vancouver to give an overview of the current state of the economy in British Columbia. Peacock said the declining Canadian dollar is one of the factors affecting British Columbia, but while it will hurt imports, it will be of benefit to exports and helps with industries such as film and television, which take advantage of a lower dollar to move their business into the Lower Mainland. He also said that given the importance of the Asia-Pacific region to trade with British Columbia, China’s current economic woes might have an adverse effect on the economy of B.C.

Leaders in BC discuss how to drive shared prosperity for British Columbians.

British Columbia is a prosperous province with an enviable abundance of natural resources and human capital. Yet we often forget that our potential economic opportunities are only realized through vision, collaboration and purposeful action.

in order to take a fresh look at the economic and social development issues holding back our collective and individual prosperity in BC, the Business Council (www.bcbc.com) and the BC Chamber of Commerce (www.bcchamber.org) launched the BC Agenda for Shared Prosperity (www.bcagenda.ca).

The BC Agenda is seeking out a path forward for greater economic collaboration, full personal participation and a better, more effective and mature culture of decision-making and debate on issues that matter to our prosperity and our potential.

Time to get ready for what’s coming next. For the last 25 years business has largely been defined by baby boomers. From startups in garages to the executive suite, those born from 1946 to 1964 have had the reigns of business, in British Columbia, Canada and beyond. But a shift is happening. A new generation of business leader is on the rise. And that would be us — the young executives and entrepreneurs who you might call the post-baby-boomers. We hope to help shape, define and lead the next generation of business.
