In an interview with BNN Bloomberg’s Amanda Lang about Canada’s economic priorities and the impact of the Biden administration’s economic plan on our growth, Robert Asselin suggested that Canada needs to start thinking about where we want to be at the end of the pandemic. He emphasized the need for a growth plan in the upcoming federal budget and the value of developing our own intellectual property.

“We need to create leverage and at the end of the day own our own ideas so we can grow our global firm. Intellectual capital is a great source of economic wealth.”
