Quebec and Russia forge stronger ties

The First Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation and the Premier of Quebec.

Jean Charest, Premier of Quebec, held talks with the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Viktor Alekseyevich Zubkov, on June 2. During their meeting, Mr. Charest reiterated Quebec’s desire to maintain long-term relations with Russia.

The leaders discussed Quebec’s Northern Plan, as well as bilateral trade, which has increased significantly in recent years. Growing numbers of Quebec companies are operating in Russia, while a number of partnerships have been concluded with Russian companies.

Last March, the Government of Quebec announced that it would be opening an office in Russia, reflecting the increasing importance of this emerging economy in international trade.
