The second largest metropolitan area in the United States, the greater Los Angeles area has a population of more than 18 million residents. As a strategic hub for finance, media, innovation and technology, Los Angeles is seeking to make greater use of media content produced in Hollywood studios on innovative platforms such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).

The crisis in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic is forcing us to re-evaluate our domestic market. The limitations and difficulties of travelling abroad provide us with an opportunity to re-examine the business opportunities of our Canadian neighbours. Medical technologies, the Mining Sector, ground transportation, as well as the market of commercial chains, such as Canadian Tire and Costco, are within Quebec's reach.

On July 1st, 2020, the new Canada-U.S.-Mexico Agreement (CUMA) came into force. Mexico is Quebec's leading trading partner in Latin America. The CUMA retains the key elements of our longstanding trade relationship with that country and incorporates new and updated provisions aimed at resolving 21st century trade issues and promoting opportunities for nearly half a billion people in North America. More than ever, Mexico is one of Quebec's priority growth markets in the automotive, recreational vehicle and aerospace sectors, as well as in the environment and energy industries.
