Focus on international markets: prospects and trends
The Right Honourable Brian Mulroney
18th Prime Minister of Canada, and Senior Partner, Norton Rose Fulbright
The Honourable Jean Charest
Premier of Quebec (2003-2012), and Partner, McCarthy Tétrault
For the 7th consecutive year, the World Trade Centre’s team of experts is holding an important round table discussion on export market development prospects for Quebec businesses.
Two of Canada’s most well-known political figures and eminent international business specialists will provide an overall picture of business issues and opportunities for Québec companies in Europe and in North America. Brian Mulroney’s government was responsible for such bold, new initiatives as the Free Trade Agreement between Canada and the United States (NAFTA), while Jean Charest and his government played a key role in starting the negotiations for an economic partnership between the European Union and Canada (CETA).
In light of recent events, our two specialists will devote a large part of their discussion to their opinions on the future and benefits of free trade agreements currently caught up in turmoil (NAFTA and CETA).
Come hear the vision and forecasts of our two guest speakers.
The Right Honourable Brian Mulroney, 18th Prime Minister of Canada, and Senior Partner, Norton Rose Fulbright
Mr. Mulroney and his government, following the signing of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Canada and the United States, negotiated and signed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Given NAFTA’s role as an engine of economic growth for the three member countries, Mr. Mulroney will explain his vision of the future of this trade treaty in the context of the upcoming US elections. He will also share his impressions on the political and economic impact of the United Kingdom’s eventual withdrawal from the European Union on neighbouring countries.
The Honourable Jean Charest, Premier of Quebec (2003-2012), and Partner, McCarthy Tétrault
Mr. Charest will share his observations on European economic and commercial outlooks, and on the business opportunities that will arise from CETA; he will also discuss his vision of the future for Quebec companies in Europe in a context of uncertainty due to the United Kingdom’s recent exit from the European Union.
The activity will be held in French.
