Québec-Jalisco cooperation

Signing ceremony for the minutes of the Québec-Jalisco Joint Working Group: Jaime Reyes Robles, Secretary of Innovation, Science and Technology of the State of Jalisco; Guillermo González Flores, Director of International Affairs of the government of Jalisco, and Jean Saintonge, Director General, Americas and Asia Pacific.

Jaime Reyes Robles, Secretary of Innovation, Science and Technology of the State of Jalisco, visited Québec from March 10 to 13 to explore new possibilities for cooperation between the Mexican state and Québec.

His visit was meant to follow up the talks held during the Québec Premier’s visit to Mexico in June, which significantly improved relations with Jalisco's new government.

Mr. Reyes Robles was accompanied by 13 representatives from institutions in the areas of research and innovation, the economy, business and culture.

His mission schedule, which was developed by the MRICFE and the MESRST, included various activities in line with the interests that he had expressed, such as greater development of cooperation in the life sciences and support for information technology industries.

Accordingly, meetings were held with representatives from Montréal InVivo, Québec International, Laval University, McGill University and Techno-Montréal so that delegation members could draw inspiration from Québec's expertise and identify future partners.

The Secretary also attended the signing ceremony for the minutes of the Québec-Jalisco Joint Working Group, which was created under the Cooperation Agreement between the Government of Québec and the Government of the State of Jalisco signed on October 7, 2009.

In June 2013, the Premier reiterated Québec's desire to step up its relations with Jalisco by signing a Joint Declaration with the Governor of the State of Jalisco.

The participants targeted very promising possibilities for cooperation in the areas of culture, higher learning, research and innovation, the economy, education and youth.
