 11/09/2019

As part of the work to intensify the Belarusian-Canadian economic cooperation and to expand contacts at the regional level, a working visit of Chargé d'Affaires of the Republic of Belarus in Canada Evgeny Russak to Montreal (the Province of Quebec) took place on September 10, 2019.

During the visit, negotiations with the leadership of the Montreal and Ottawa offices of the Canada Eurasia Russia Business Association (CERBA), the Technoparc Montreal, the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal and the company “Positron” were held. In addition, a representative of the Embassy visited the headquarters of the International Civil Aviation Organization, where he held a meeting at the ICAO Bureau of Legal Affairs and International Relations.

Opportunities for expanding trade and economic cooperation between the Republic of Belarus and the Province of Quebec were discussed at meetings with representatives of business structures in Montreal. Given the fact that Montreal is a technological center of Canada, the Belarusian side’s interest in organizing business contacts of the two countries in the IT sphere was emphasized. Canadian partners were provided with information on the economy of the Republic of Belarus, country's participation in the EAEU, as well as on technology transfer centers operating in Belarus, and on the country's innovative structure.
