Shaping a path for growth and prosperity in Nova Scotia

Through the Economic advisory panel, Nova Scotia has to control its own economy destiny and in the global economy. It has to adopt a much more disciplined and strategic approach in order to take advantage of the opportunities new emerging in the global market and the success of this government will be determined by its willingness to make the tough choices that can move Nova Scotia along this path.
As I have read through the Economic advisory panel, the problems and opportunities Nova Scotia has faced are numeral. Even during the current recession, Nova Scotia has used short term stimulus spending to improve on the situation caused by the recession and still other areas of the world like the Asian nation have still remained dominant. This can be due to the high saving factor that is in the Far East. Now we have to focus on the longer term opportunities and challenges facing the province and the steps needed to enhance the climate for growth in the province.
As I have read through the Economic advisory panel, this is some of the challenges the province is facing:
Increased competition from low wage producers elsewhere and employment losses in communities beyond Halifax and this has resulted in the loss of population, the migration from rural to urban areas of the provinces and even to migration to other parts of Canada and beyond

Another challenge facing the province is the rapidly aging population and the drop in the birth rate and steady outmigration of the younger people of nova Scotia and increasing reduction of student enrollment (15-19) age group and although the government has increased spending in the education sector for the economy through the expansion of community colleges and the funding of universities, . This has come at a time when the student enrollment has reduced rapidly.
