Bilateral cooperation was formalized in 1989 when the Premier of Québec at the time, Robert Bourassa, and then Minister-President of Bavaria, Max Streibl, signed a cooperation agreement in Munich. The two leaders agreed to “create a joint working group tasked with proposing concrete projects.” The Québec-Bavaria Cooperation Working Group (GTQB) meets every two years to take stock of past projects and select new ones.
The success of this cooperation is due in large part to Québec and Bavaria’s shared desire to foster partnerships between companies, universities, research centres and public institutions, and to steadily expand their networks.
Bavaria has had an office in Montréal since 1999. Its mandate is to strengthen and promote bilateral relations in the political, administrative, economic, scientific, technological, cultural, education and social spheres.
