Bavarian Minister-President, Mr. Seehofer: „Sustainable energy supply is a central topic in our partnership”

Both Bavaria and Quebec want to renew and deepen their yearlong partnership. Their focus is the topic of sustainable energy supply, which was discussed during a meeting between Minister-President, Mr. Horst Seehofer and Premier of Québec, Mr. Jean Charest. Seehofer: “The visit of Premier Charest is a friendly visit. We both want to bring our collaboration forward. Québec is one of the top regions concerning sustainable energy supplies and Bavaria itself sets out new standards with its new energy concept in Germany.”

Even regarding the new economic, social and environmental project of over 15 years in the north of Québec, “Plan Nord”, does Minister-President Seehofer see further future collaborations between the two regions. “The “Plan Nord” is a way to secure Bavaria’s raw material supply on the long term. This is also a great opportunity for Bavarian firms specialised in energy supply and infrastructure“, explains Mr. Seehofer.
