From Gatineau to Carleton, with stops in Sept-Îles, Trois-Rivières, Sherbrooke and a dozen other cities in the Province of Quebec, BCF lawyer Didier Culat will meet with hundreds of entrepreneurs in every region of Quebec between now and April, to help them break in to the European market following the coming into force of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).
Culat is one of a handful of experts participating in Investissement Québec’s Manufacturing Initiative tour, which is visiting 17 cities in the province between October 28 and April 7, to give a new boost to Quebec manufacturing companies. He will be giving a presentation titled, “Are you ready for Europe? / How to prepare to take advantage of the free trade agreements.”
“When you’re exporting, you’re not there to see the sights, but to do business in another country. You can’t play it by ear. You need to do your homework--be ready with a tax plan, a commercial plan, an intellectual property plan, have a good grasp of the rules of origin, etc. And doing your homework is something you can learn to do,” points out Culat.
The IQ tour, a joint project with the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec (FCCQ), will wind up with a national forum in Montreal on April 7, 2017, attended by all the players in the manufacturing ecosystem and the biggest innovation specialists in Quebec.
