The Montreal Port Authority (MPA) has welcomed the Quebec government’s announcement introducing the first ever Quebec Maritime Strategy.
This involves the government’s commitment to support the marine industry with more than $1.5 billion in investments, along with its commitment to sustainably develop the marine economy.
“On behalf of the MPA, I enthusiastically welcome this first ever Quebec Maritime Strategy, that I believe marks a turning point for our industry,” stated Sylvie Vachon, President and CEO of the MPA. “This Strategy will strengthen the collaborative efforts already underway between marine industry and supply chain players to develop concrete projects that generate economic benefits through the best environmental and social practices.”
Since the Quebec government expressed its intention to adopt a comprehensive Maritime Strategy, industry stakeholders, including the MPA, were consulted to help build the Strategy.
