Up swing in building expected HALIFAX (CP) An up- swing is expected in the con- struction industry this year, but an improved system of management-labor relations will be needed to maintain prosperity, Henry de Puy- jalon. president of the Cana- dian Construction Asso- ciation, said here. Mr. Puyjalon said in an interview that public and private construction this year is expected to exceed billion with no end to the boom in sight. But. he said the current ar- rangement of "sporadic strikes and time-consuming bargaining" was not working to the advantage of either labor or management. "Companies go bankrupt and the grief and hardships that beset the striking tradesmen make it quite evi- dent the system is not effec- he said. Mr. Puyjalon said unrest- ricted dialogue was needed to work out an alternative solu- tion to management-labor problems. He did not elaborate.

Industry lives borrowed designs, time OTTAWA (CP) Canadian industry is living on borrowed designs and borrowed time, risking the nation's future as a world industrial power, warns a group of prominent design experts. "The negative evidence is the woosh of an estimated million flowing out of Canada this year to buy computer components that, with foresight, might well have been made says the Toronto consulting firm, EMR and Associates. Most Canadian products, from hatchback automobiles to household appliances, are designed somewhere else and another million pours out of this country each year to pay for foreign design and technology. "Design is so easy to import and once you have 60 per cent of your manufacturing con- trolled from other countries the problem is hard to says Robbins Elliott, director of the federal Talks started on Concorde DALLAS, Tex.. (Reuter) The makers of Concorde said Sunday talks were under way to lease two and possibly four of the controversial super- sonic airliners to an American and a Venezuelan airline. The announcement came as Concorde 02. here on its first tour of the United States, left the giant Dallas-Fort Worth airport for Washington where it will face some of its harshest U.S. critics in Congress. Spokesmen for British Aircraft Corp. BAC and France's Aero Spatiale, the two companies which built Concorde, said leasing negotiations were under way involving Dallas-based Braniff International, the only American airline which retains an option to purchase the supersonic plane, and with the Venezuelan national air- line Viasa.

The design office and the National Design Council, made up of private individuals appointed to advise the government, have launched a major campaign to warn Canadian industry of the dangers lurking in over- dependency on foreign design.

As new'trading blocs form in Eu- rope and Asia, as our once-un- questioned ties with the United States become strained, as the world monetary crisis threatens to stand the old balance of power on its head, Canada must either stake out a technological claim for itself in the international marketplace or risk economic said EMR and Associates in broadside. The comments of Edmonds and Douglas a number of other experts were published in a 22-page advertising supplement dis- tributed by the Financial Post this month to alert Canadians to the problem. The study was financed by the federal government. Next step in the campaign is a federal-provincial conference in Winnipeg today aimed at spurring provincial industry officials to work with private firms to improve original Canadian design. EMR says the idea that im- ported design and technology is cheaper for the businessmen could prove dis- astrous. "Exports of our raw mate- rials continue to show a pro- digal rate of increase while our secondary industry stagnates. Slowly but ruthlessly, at home and abroad, the foreign com- petition is cutting us to often with knives forged from Canadian ore." EMR says that blaming our troubles on foreign ownership and multi-national cor- porations is "dodging our own responsibility. After all. we walked into this trap with our eyes open and full of greed. By importing investment in bulk, we bought ourselves the se- cond highest standard of liv- ing in the world and the semblance of industrial power. "What we didn't bargain on was that imported investment also meant imported tech- nology, imported design, im- ported innovation and im- ported business decisions that may not be keyed to Canada's national goals."

Mr. Tropea of Montreal said the chamber has always agreed that the federal government should have the power to prevent or. limit foreign investments that would work against Canadian interests or objectives. But it remained opposed to the present draft of a federal bill setting up a review agency to screen foreign direct investments or takeovers in Canada, allowing only those transactions that would produce "significant benefit to Canada." In his report to the annual meeting of the chamber, a federation of more than 700 local and provincial groups representing businessmen, Mr. Tropea dis- puted that any executive sur- vey of Canadian public views on foreign investment had been undertaken. Earlier this year Alastair Gillespie, federal minister of industry, trade and com- merce, accused the chamber of being out of touch with business realities and popular opinion on the issue. Mr. Tropea said the chamber wants the concept of "significant benefit" replaced by one empowering the government to block investments it considers a detriment to Canadian interests, thus putting the onus on the government.

NEW YORK (AP) Prices advanced in heavy trading to- day as investors gained con- fidence from some evidence of falling short-term interest rates.

Among Canadians on the New York exchange, Cana- dian Pacific was up at Vi; Dome Mines JA at and Mclntyre Vi at International Nickel was down VB at ing diverted to other countries. It also might en- courage other countries to retaliate by placing restric- tions on Canadian investment abroad. Mr. Tropea said that limiting the ability of foreign- controlled companies to ex- pand in Canada, the bill "directly discriminates against the Canadian shareholders of such com- panies and relegates them to a second-class category." Mr. Tropea is a vice- president of Bell Canada. Turning to the need for a national industrial strategy, he said the views of the chamber and 11 other major national business and trade associations had been made known to Ottawa. The briefs all stressed the themes that co-ordinated in- dustrial policies and sustained high growth are needed and that there should be prior con- sultation by government with business, not after policy is determined. About 600 delegates are attending the four-day annual meeting, which ends Wednesday. PREDICTS GNP RISE In his annual review, general manager C. H. Scof- field predicted growth in gross national product this year of better than seven per cent "unless a rash of strikes or crop failures or unforeseen events takes place.'" Labelling inflation as Canada's major problem, he said it is essential to develop long-term planning and incen- tives to improve agricultural and farm productivity. The chamber was pleased that the federal government resorted to export controls of certain food products in a move to counter fast-rising food prices. Mr. Scoffieid suggested tax reductions, personal and sales, as other anti-inflation measures. "Government revenues have risen faster than es- timated and much of this growth has corne from inflation. Tax reductions would give wage earners and those persons on fixed in- comes relief from inflation and would moderate wage demands."
