In December 2012, the Brussels-Capital Region and Quebec celebrated the tenth anniversary of the signing of their cooperation agreement, which coincided with the departure of Christos Sirros, Quebec’s Delegate General in Brussels for the last eight years. On behalf of our region, we wish to thank him for this active and fruitful collaboration and wish him the best of success in his future endeavours.
On 18 February, Caroline Émond took over as head of the General Delegation of Quebec. We extend her a warm welcome and hope that our collaboration with Quebec will become even more intense. Our first appointment will be a perfect example of this, with a strong Brussels presence at the biennial Americana fair, the International exhibition of Environmental Technologies in Montreal.
