A Persuasive Illustration Of The Benefits Of Free Trade: The Sural Group
Montreal, April 18, 2001
In an address to one of the Montreal Conference's International Forums, Dr. Alfredo Riviere, President of The Sural Group, illustrated how beneficial free trade has been to his company. In the same vein, he insisted on Quebec's openness to free trade, saying that this was one of the key factors that brought Sural to establish a subsidiary in the province.

According to Dr. Riviere, "Integration does not mean creating economic blocs to confront other blocs, but rather to improve the trade opportunities within those trade zones and to negotiate with other continents or regions that have common markets". He went on to point out that integration must take place without discriminatory treatment with respect to both investment and trade. It must guarantee the creation of a large open market that is free to all participants, resulting in larger internal markets. With improved productivity, costs will go down and the labour force will grow and become more highly skilled. All these advantages will be reflected in product quality.
