“I am delighted to add a new string to my bow and to participate in the promotion of the island of flowers from Montreal; Quebec has always shown a strong potential for tourism in Martinique,” Roy-Camille said in a statement. “I will work with my new teams to grow this interest and to globally promote and increase the stature of the island not only in Canada but also in the United States and Latin America.”
