As part of a Council of the Federation mission, Premier Jean Charest will be in Washington on February 19 and 20 to meet with the U.S. governors in attendance at the National Governors Association (NGA) Winter Meeting in the U.S. capital.
Premier Charest will carry out the mission along with several of his Canadian counterparts. This will be the first formal meeting between the Council of the Federation, which brings together the Canadian premiers, and its U.S. equivalent, the NGA.
The mission will focus on trade and borders, energy and the environment. Meetings with representatives of the U.S. Administration and major think tanks are also on the agenda.
