Governor Jim Douglas is traveling to Canada this week to discuss a bilateral relationship with Quebec.
Douglas will be joined by Lieutenant Governor Brian Dubie and other administration officials, as well as Vermont business leaders. While in Quebec City, they will meet with Quebec government officials, including Premier Jean Charest, and provincial business leaders.
The delegation will travel to Quebec City on Wednesday and return the following day.
Douglas says it’s important for the state and province to build on their economic, trade, energy and environmental ties.
Douglas and Charest plan to sign two agreements – one updating collaborative efforts to clean up Lake Champlain, and one committing to work together on agri-food initiatives – at their meeting.
