LONDON, United Kingdom, July 13, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - François Bouilhac,
Chairman of the Board of Directors of Expansion Québec, today
participated in the inauguration of Expansion Québec's new business
offices in London in the presence of Québec Minister of the Economy,
Innovation and Exports Jacques Daoust, Québec Agent-General in London
Stéphane Paquet, and Martin Le Sauteur, CEO at Acquisio.
"Expansion Québec is a major partner of our government that is fostering
growth and the rapid development of Québec exporting firms. Through its
sixth subsidiary in the world, this innovative, dynamic organization is
bolstering its support for Québec companies that wish to capture new
markets and broaden their presence abroad," Minister Jacques Daoust
The organization offers Québec SMEs that wish to set up operations
abroad tailor-made services in respect of domiciliation, office leasing
and guidance for executives. The services help accelerate the
establishment process and minimize the attendant costs and risks.
Acquisio has concluded an agreement with Expansion Québec in order to
occupy business premises at the Québec Government Office in London. A
world leader in performance-related media solutions platforms, Acquisio
is helping marketing specialists to purchase, monitor, manage, optimize
and produce reports focusing on their media placements in all networks.
"Our presence in London represents another step toward the development
of our business on the international scene. Expansion Québec is
offering us not only space in the heart of London but also advice and
an outstanding knowledge network," Martin Le Sauteur said.
Established in 2011 by the Québec government, Expansion Québec is a
non-profit organization whose services complement those offered by the
overall network of Québec representatives abroad.
In addition to the new offices, Expansion Québec maintains offices in
New York, Dakar, Ouagadougou, Sao Paulo and San Mateo. Expansion Québec
relies on the existing network of its partner Entreprise Rhône-Alpes
International (ERAI) comprising 24 business offices and is aiming by
2015 to open 14 Québec business centres. Businesses in the Rhône-Alpes
region and Québec will thus be able to take advantage of a network
established in 40 cities.
"Business executives may perceive the process of capturing a new market
abroad as being complex. Expansion Québec's objective is to support
them to ensure that they set up operations quickly, effectively and
cheaply, thereby facilitating their growth at the international level.
Since its inception, Expansion Québec has guided nearly 40 businesses,"
François Bouilhac added.
