WHY TEXAS?

Texas is Quebec’s second-largest trade partner in the United States, after New York State. Its strong, industrialized economy is a sound value for the business development of Quebec companies.

In 2012, Quebec exported $3 billion in goods to the state of Texas, mainly consisting of airplanes, aeronautics materials, aluminium, and medicine. Texas’ economy is based on a number of promising sectors: energy, information technology, electronics and software, life sciences, green technology, and aircraft construction.

Texas also represents:

  • A population of 26 million inhabitants whose average annual disposable income is $40,147
  • The second most populous state in the United States, ahead of New York and California
  • The second-highest GDP in the United States: $1.207 billion
  • The third-largest high-tech hub in the U.S., after Silicon Valley and Massachusetts
  • The world’s 13th largest economy, were it to be an independent state
