Practice-oriented knowledge on Canadian business culture: key factors for your business success

Canada is the second largest territorial state of the world. The country is characterised by its large reserves of wood, water and oil. Therefore, the processing of wood and paper as well as the production of natural gas and petroleum constitute a significant part of the Canadian economy. In addition to that, the sectors of car manufacturing and aircraft construction, industries of metal and food as well as the information and communication technologies are important to its economy. Canada is oriented towards modern technologies among all its sectors.
