The 18th edition of Québec Marine Day will take place on October 23, 2018 under the banner “Join the Movement”.
The international scene was recently marked by events likely to shake up commercial trade worldwide and have far-reaching repercussions on the shipping industry in Québec, where the will of many economic and political players to recognize the advantages shipping offers has contributed to the latter’s development. In this context, it is important that the Québec government and marine industry continue to work in close collaboration to maintain and enhance Québec’s competitiveness vis-à-vis the international competition and to pursue efforts to ensure a strong, prosperous marine industry.
Officially recognized by a Québec government Order-in-Council in 2002, Québec Marine Day is organized jointly by the St. Lawrence Shipoperators and the St. Lawrence Economic Development Council (SODES) primarily to make parliamentarians and senior government officials aware of issues related to the marine sector so that the industry can remain competitive and continue to serve Quebeckers’ best interests.
The event is strictly reserved for the two organizations’ members.
