Summary of Mr. Rich Steffens (Executive Director for the Western Hemisphere-U.S. Department of Commerce) speech to the MMA on 3 March 2016


I had asked Rich to speak to the MMA about trade with Canada and specifically the Canadian Shipbuilding market.  Rich was the perfect speaker for the end of a long day.  Here are the main points that Rich thought would interest the group.


• Currently the government of Canada is planning to spend up to $37.5 Billion Dollars on revamping their Navy and Commercial fleet.


• Canada has two major industry events per year where shipbuilders and equipment manufacturers meet.


• The shows are Mari-Tech National Marine Exhibition and Conference, St. John’s, NL, May 5-6/16 and DEFSEC Atlantic 2016 September 6-8 in Halifax.


• He said any questions about attending the events can be sent to
