A delegation of 10 Canadian business executives from the Province of Quebec recently visited Medellín, accompanied by Export Quebec and led by Counselor for International Affairs Suzie Racine, for the purposes of connecting with construction industry executives in metropolitan Medellín. The successful event took place at Hotel San Fernando Plaza on March 14th and was attended by a diverse contingent of Colombian construction sector executives with backgrounds ranging from residential construction to civil engineering and public works.
The reception was organized by local professional services firm Unido Digital and Finance Colombia. “It is great to see that Colombia, and Medellín in particular, are attracting positive attention from the rest of the world when it comes to investment, commerce and establishing closer business ties,” said Loren Moss, executive editor of Finance Colombia and founder of Unido Digital. “Canada is one of Colombia’s primary trading partners, and Quebec is one of the most economically and politically important regions of Canada. It makes perfect sense for Colombian and Canadian executives to work together in order to strengthen economic, cultural and political ties.”
