As Canada focuses on economic development in challenging times, provincial advantages to leveraging global industry have become apparent in a variety of industries. Christian Reinaudo, CEO of Agfa Gevaert NV, will talk about the challenge of taking a 100 year old company with its roots entrenched in consumer, industrial, and technical film manufacturing, to the digital age of healthcare IT and digital publishing. Agfa has spearheaded this process of change with investment in Ontario technology companies and links to local Universities, benefiting from the area’s innovative and highly skilled workforce. The benefits of locally-developed innovation are multiplied, both in economic activity as well as an alignment of emerging solutions for local needs, such as improved, cost-effective healthcare. Mr. Reinaudo will discuss this process and the new Ontario-native products that are being used to enhance the company’s competitiveness in today’s global market.
