Nouvelle étape dans les relations d'amitié entre le québec et l'italie

Québec, le 18 septembre 2003  - 2003/09/18

Under the Québec-Italy Joint Commission, representatives of the Québec and Italian governments signed a cultural, scientific, and technological cooperation agreement for the 2003–2006 period. This new agreement will allow both Québec society and Italian society to express the wealth and diversity of their cultures through long-lasting institutional partnerships, notably in the field of culture. “With their similar languages and Latin traditions, Québec and Italy are both concerned about the question of cultural diversity,” stated the two delegations. “This is the reason they agreed to set up cultural exchanges with one another.” (Available in French only)
