Quebec must increase its exports to ensure its economic development, and Mexico is a prime market. That's the message delivered by Premier Philippe Couillard on Sunday during a trade mission in Mexico City.
Quebec's exports to Mexico are growing, but it is far from enough, Couillard said. He wants to to increase them by at least 20 per cent each year. The value of Quebec's exports to Mexico reached $1.2 billion in 2014, up 19.5 per cent compared to the previous year. For Quebec, Mexico has become the third largest trading partner.
In the coming years, Quebec intends to better position itself in this potential market of 120 million consumers.
