11.1. The Minister shall, in cooperation with the departments concerned, devise an international relations policy, propose it to the Government and see to its implementation. The policy must contribute to the expansion of Québec’s influence and to Québec’s development, particularly in the commercial, cultural, economic, political and social spheres.
In order, in particular, to ensure the implementation of that policy, the Minister shall devise, in cooperation with the departments concerned, a multi-year deployment plan for Québec’s international action. The plan determines short- and medium-term results targets as well as the means chosen for achieving them and identifies actions to be taken to support the deployment of Québec’s international action. It is submitted to the Government for approval.
