Minister of International Relations, La Francophonie and External Trade Jean-François Lisée, accompanied by over one hundred people from the business community, academia and international cooperation organizations, led the most important mission to date by the Government of Québec in Africa from September 6 to 13.
Learning about the African market
Meetings with local stakeholders and partners have also been planned for the university, union and international cooperation delegates. This multisectoral mission will also provide an opportunity for business people to build partnerships and familiarize themselves with the African market.
Mr. Lisée will hold high-level talks with political leaders such as the President and Prime Minister of Senegal, the Prime Minister of the Ivory Coast and senior officials in Burkina Faso. These meetings will help Québec strengthen its ties with the international Francophone community.
