Quebec announces opening of Representative Bureau in Israel

Minister of International Relations and La Francophonie and Minister responsible for the Status of Women Martine Biron announced the establishment of a Québec Representative office in Tel Aviv, Israel. This is the 35th representative office of Quebec abroad and the first in the Middle East.

The Minister believes that the establishment of the Bureau du Québec is an opportunity for international development and will generate several spinoffs, including the strengthening of governmental and institutional relations in the areas of research and innovation.

Quebec is especially interested in tapping into Israel’s know-how in cybersecurity and artificial intelligence.

Two cooperation agreements have been signed between the governments of Quebec and Israel in 2007 and 2017. One concerns multi-sector cooperation and the other, on the development of cooperation in industrial research and technological innovation.
