MEBinar - Business Destination : Canada - Québec

> The Monaco Economic Board (MEB) under the aegis of the Embassy of Monaco to the United States and Canada in Washington D.C. and in partnership with the Embassy of Canada in France and Monaco and with the Delegation of Quebec in France and Monaco, is organising a MEBinar devoted to economic opportunities in the second largest country in the world.

> A strong business potential : Well integrated in North America thanks to the free exchange agreement renegotiated in 2019 with the United States and Mexico, Canada has also developed strong strategic links with Europe and Asia. It enjoys a robust and prosperous economy, evidenced by the GDP of the country which has increased by 8.9% in the last quarter of 2020, the greatest increase recorded in almost 60 years. Quebec will also be showcased in this MEBinar. Just like for the whole of Canada, the French-speaking province has a competitive tax environment and low installation costs, with a young, dynamic and highly qualified workforce. These advantages make it a land of innovation and opportunities.

> Q&A : The participants can ask their questions to the various speakers. You can also send your questions now on mebinaire@meb.mc.

N.B.: this MEBinar will be carried out with simultaneous translation in English and French.
