Notes pour une intervention de la ministre d'État aux Relations internationales, Mme Louise Beaudoin, à l'occasion de l'ouverture du colloque «Industries culturelles et dialogue des civilisations dans les Amériques».

In this address, Ms Beaudoin stressed the importance of developing a binding international instrument on cultural diversity. The Minister of State for International Relations raised some questions as to which body should govern such an instrument and broached the challenge of linking this instrument with the WTO, indicating, however, that it would not be desirable to include culture in the WTO.
