The Government of Quebec recently announced its Africa strategy, which locates the vital role of trade and investment in a comprehensive strategy for Africa.
Welcoming the report, Vice Chair of the Board Paula Caldwell St-Onge said the plan shows leadership and foresight. ‘’Africa’s markets hold great untapped potential for Canada and are essential to effective trade diversification”.
‘’Quebec’s approach demonstrates the importance of sound strategies and can serve not only as a model for engagement with Africa’s dynamic markets, but also as a source of key insights for economic cooperation”.
‘’We are pleased to support the realization of these objectives in any way we can as The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business,’’ added St-Onge, who is the former Director General for Sub-Saharan Africa at Global Affairs Canada and served as Ambassador to Haiti.
