But don't just take our word for it.

“Without CME’s support and outstanding advocacy on initiatives such as corporate income tax rate reduction, ACCA, elimination of capital tax, the SMART program etc., we would not have been able to invest more than $20 million in leading-edge technologies and capital assets. For tangible actions your business can count on, look no further than to leaders in the industry in getting your voice heard and issues addressed.”
