New help for Mem­phrem­a­gog ex­port busi­nesses

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

The Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC and the Car­refour Que­bec in­ter­na­tional (CQI) re­cently con­cluded an agree­ment to fa­vor the ref­er­enc­ing of busi­nesses in the Mem­phrem­a­gog re­gion to the CQI’s aide pro­gram for ex­por­ta­tions.

In the agree­ment, the MRC will fi­nance Mem­phrem­a­gog busi­nesses who qual­ify up to 50 % of the costs of ser­vices from the CQI. The two or­ga­ni­za­tions will work in col­lab­o­ra­tion in or­der to qual­ify and re­fer ad­mis­si­ble busi­nesses to the ser­vices.

“The MRC wants to be proac­tive for busi­nesses on its ter­ri­tory and of­fer them ac­cess to the best ex­per­tise there is, in or­der to re­spond to their par­tic­u­lar needs,” com­mented Jac­ques De­mers, the pre­fect of the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC. “Ex­port­ing busi­nesses or those who want to launch into this ad­ven­ture know how dif­fi­cult it is to tar­get mar­kets out­side of our bor­ders and to put in place good strate­gies to mar­ket their prod­ucts. We hope that by work­ing with the CQI ex­perts they will at­tain their in­ter­na­tional busi­ness ob­jec­tives.”

The ser­vices of­fered by the CQI are var­ied and help with the prepa­ra­tion of a busi­ness plan for po­ten­tial clients, learn­ing about in­ter­na­tional mar­ket­ing, trans­port and cus­toms, and in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty.
