Langlois lawyers actively involved in the Quebec business community, as chair of the Journées économiques symposium organized by the Quebec federation of chambers of commerce
The firm strongly believes in the importance of contributing to the growth and dynamism of economic life in Quebec. That is why we were pleased to support the Quebec federation of chambers of commerce (FCCQ) by acting as honorary chair of its second annual “Journées économiques” symposium held on November 21, 22 and 23 in Quebec City.
The symposium is an ideal occasion for members of the business community to engage with and hear from well-known speakers on economic matters and experts from various business sectors, as they look ahead to the coming year and assess the issues, stakes and challenges it will represent for businesses.
Participants had the occasion to hear Pierre Cléroux from the BDC speak on 2018’s economic perspectives, and to witness a panel discussion on the paucity of private investment in Quebec moderated by Alain Dubuc of La Presse, with panellists Henri-Paul Rousseau of Power Corporation and Emilio Imbriglio of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton.
Sophie Brochu from Gaz Métro, David Murray from Hydro-Québec Distribution and Philippe Dunsky of Philippe Dunsky Energy Consulting discussed the challenges of transitioning to alternate forms of energy, with Pierre-Olivier Pineau of HEC Montréal acting as moderator. The subject of artificial intelligence as a major development hub was also canvassed at the symposium, and attendees were privy to a new FCCQ study of demographic challenges and labour mobility.
Another fine example of Langlois lawyers’ involvement in the business community.
