next-generation lithium-ion batteries.

This is the background against which Iya Touré and Amyot Choquette, respectively Vice-President and Senior Director at Ressources Québec, took part in an important mission in Asia from October 7 to 11, organized by Natural Resources Canada and Global Affairs Canada.


The mission, which featured forums on mining investments and green mining technologies, included stops in Japan and South Korea. In parallel with the official program, Ressources Québec took the opportunity to meet with several companies and investors related to the natural resources and battery components sector.
