Our head of office, Martine Hébert joined colleagues at the SelectChicago FDI Virtual Conference on how our office is helping Quebec companies export and invest in the Midwest, and more precisely in Chicagoland, within the context of the new USMCA. Thank you to our colleague Karla Ruth Orozco Toledano at the Consulate General of Mexico in Chicago for her perspective on the new agreement and to Ginta Rose Rubin of CITCA - Chicago International Trade Commissioners' Association for her great work moderating this virtual event.
On February 25, 2020, the government of Wales and the government of Québec signed a declaration of intent and the creation of a cooperation program originally covering the fields of research and innovation, sustainable development and the culture. The government of Wales and the government of Québec have maintained close relations since that date in order to lay the foundations for a new promising collaboration.
After nearly four years of service with the Québec Government Office in Chicago, business development officer, Leslie Westfall, will be leaving us at the end of the month (June 2020) to start a new and exciting adventure in Paris, France.
