Event description

Description

Learn about Marseille, your hub for Southern Europe and North Africa when it comes to trade and investment opportunities!

Marseille is the second-largest city in France and a major centre for trade and industry, with excellent transportation infrastructure including France’s largest seaport and third-largest cargo airport. Marseille’s Mediterranean location makes it an ideal entry point to leverage the exciting opportunities of CETA as well as established commercial networks throughout North Africa. Join us for a dynamic session in which we will learn about the most interesting trade, investment and joint-venture opportunities in Marseille.

The event will promote business opportunities in Marseille-Provence and identify Canadian companies aiming to develop activities in Europe and Africa. Marseille-Provence companies will be in attendance, aiming to develop activities in North America and aiming to develop partnerships and joint ventures between Canadian and Marseille-Provence companies to jointly enter the African market. Lastly, we hope to foster innovation and training agreementments between Marseille-Provence and Toronto.
