Québec’s National Holiday was a highly anticipated event this year in Barcelona. On June 21, a number of guests and friends of the Québec Government Office in Barcelona gathered at Moja Palace, an emblematic neoclassical building in the Catalan capital.
During her address, Québec Government Office in Barcelona Director Marjolaine Ricard alluded to the common challenges that Québec and Catalonia are facing:
- climate change
- sustainable development.
Québec’s representative in the Iberian Peninsula also took the opportunity to remind the many professionals who maintain relations with the Québec Government Office in Barcelona that in these difficult times of economic crisis in Spain and Catalonia, Québec would endeavour to support them to the best of its abilities, primarily through the numerous projects implemented as a result of the cooperative ties that have developed between the two governments over nearly 15 years.
“I hope that, together, we will cultivate this invaluable collaboration that will enable us to maintain rich and productive relations marked by maturity, respect, tolerance and openness,” concluded Ms. Ricard before the start of the 2012 Saint-Jean festivities.
