“Quebecers and Americans share a long history grounded in common values and interests. We make things and build prosperity together. In times of crisis, this partnership is more crucial than ever. Last year, the U.S. imported US $5B of Covid-19 related products from Canada, nearly 25% of which were from Québec. We must continue to fight protectionism, bolster supply chains and keep the border fluid in order to revive growth and ensure that our economic region remains one of the strongest and most competitive in the world.”- Catherine Loubier, Québec’s Delegate General in New York; Marie-Claude Francoeur, Quebec’s Delegate in Boston; Martine Hebert, Quebec’s Delegate in Chicago
