The American market still represents over 67% of Quebec exports, and it must therefore remain a priority for companies developing their business at the international level. Despite the fact that the market is characterized by modest growth, this growth nonetheless remains steady. In addition to its geographical proximity, our Southern neighbours’ business culture and regulations are similar to our own, which is an undeniable advantage.

New York City has been a long-standing partner for Quebec and for businesses in the metropolitan region. Several companies have managed to carve out a significant position in the megalopolis, taking advantage of the opportunities it has to offer.

Whether it involves the infrastructure, “post-Sandy” reconstruction, information technology, fashion, consumer goods, environment, financial, or transportation sectors, there are a wealth of business opportunities waiting to be seized by Quebec companies.
