ATB Financial’s senior economist will return to Red Deer on Wednesday evening to share his insights.

Todd Hirsch is scheduled to speak at a Central Alberta Rural Manufacturers Association learning event at the Red Deer Lodge.

He is expected to discuss the economic outlook for manufacturing, focusing on the emerging countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China, as well as on North America, Canada and the energy producing regions of Western Canada.

Hirsch has presented in Red Deer on several recent occasions, including at another CARMA event a year ago.

CARMA will also conduct a seminar earlier Wednesday on doing business with government.

Federal and provincial representatives will describe how to sell services and products to the government.

They will also provide an overview of the policies, regulations and trade agreements that determine how governments procure goods and services and contract construction work.

Seminar participants will also learn how to access bid opportunities through MERXTM and the Alberta Purchasing Connection, and about electronic tendering systems.

CARMA’s How to Sell to Government seminar will also take place at the Red Deer Lodge, and is expected to run from 1 to 4 p.m.

Hirsch’s presentation is planned for 7 p.m., with a networking showcase and dinner to precede it at 4:30 and 5:30 p.m., respectively.

Registrations for both events are still being accepted, with the afternoon seminar costing $21 and the evening dinner and presentation $63.
