MONTREAL, June 4 /CNW Telbec/ - Paul Lévesque is President of Pfizer
Canada Inc., the Canadian operation of Pfizer Inc, the world's leading
research-based pharmaceutical company. Pfizer discovers, develops and markets
innovative medicines for humans and animals, and is one of the leading
investors in research and development in Canada across all industries.
As a way out of the current economic downturn, Canada is superbly
positioned to make the bold choices necessary to build an economy for the 21st
century centred on research and innovation. Quebec has taken important steps
in this direction already, but much more needs to be done to prevent Canada's
R&D sector from being decimated by a "perfect storm" of coming issues. M.
Lévesque will offer some important, even radical, suggestions on how we can
co-create prosperity by building a new framework for research and innovation
We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you to this most fascinating
