Vermont Chamber Celebrates Francophonie Month

The Vermont Chamber joined key partners at the Vermont State House to celebrate Francophonie Month in Vermont and the shared French history and cultural and commercial ties that link communities together for business prosperity and security. 

Chris Carrigan, Vice President of Business Development for the Vermont Chamber was joined by Marie-Claude Francoeur, Quebec Delegate to New England, Susan Murray of U.S. Commercial Service, Mustafa Soykurt, Consul General of France in Boston, and Tim Tierney with the Vermont Agency of Commerce.

Governor Phil Scott proclaimed March as Francophonie Month, citing March 20th as the International Day of La Francophonie, celebrating the bond between francophone regions around the world and their shared values of democracy, human rights, cultural diversity, and solidarity.

For enhanced cross-border trade between Vermont and Canada, Vermont is participating in the 2023 Aeromart Montréal aerospace and defense trade show. This work will support the Vermont – Québec Aerospace Trade Corridor and expand on the Vermont Chamber’s record of work with Québec and Canada.
