The seminar in brief

Despite the context of uncertainty during the current renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the United States remains a thriving strategic market and the principal partner for Canadian companies. For instance, 72% of Québec exports make their way to the United States, and 35% of our imports come from our neighbours to the South.

On March 21, attend a seminar on business opportunities in the United States, during which our experts from both sides of the border will discuss the strong trade relations that persist between our two nations, and will provide companies with the right tools and information required to pursue, maintain, and continue this collaboration.

A unique opportunity to:

  • Find out how to maintain and protect your investments on the American market
  • Acquire new knowledge about the American business environment and ecosystem
  • Get inspired by company representatives who will share their experience on the market
  • Learn more about the market and about business opportunities in your sector
  • Meet experts involved in trade with the United States on a daily basis
