Canadian Defence and Security market opportunities for the European textile industry – EU-ALLIANCE

06 . 03 . 2023
Webinar (2.30 p.m -4.00 p.m)

The EU-Alliance project consortium is organising its last mission (within the project) to Canada. Thanks to the good relations between France and Quebec and to the expertise represented by the consortium, the actors of the country will welcome us to exchange and create collaborations between our delegation and the organisations of the Canadian defence and security market.

The Canadian defence budget has been growing for the last 10 years, and this sector is driven by highly innovative aeronautics, notably through technical textiles and advanced materials.
It is also important to note that Canada is a gateway country to the US market, 90% of their exports are destined for this market.

The mission will take place from 29 May to 2 June 2023, between Quebec and Ontario in Canada with several actions as: B2B meetings, visits of industrials sites, logistics and post mission support.

A webinar presenting the mission with a panel of experts will take place on 06 March 2022, from 2.30 pm to 4:00 pm
