Poly-Monde is a student initiative bringing together 24 future engineers from Polytechnique Montréal, whose goal is to establish an economic comparison between the province of Quebec and other regions of the world. For the last 30 years, the members of every Poly-Monde mission have visited 50 companies across three main business sectors. This year, the mission will focus on financial services, transport and mobility and biotechnology. In May 2021, Poly-Monde members will fly to Singapore and Taiwan to complete the international part of their mission. Upon their return, the students will condense their learning in a mission report.
The study of financial services introduces itself when looking at the Asian market. Faced with the challenges of the current year, Singapore, Taiwan, Canada and their Fintech industries are demonstrating innovation. The opportunities are numerous; the challenges are complex for banks, insurance companies, and investment firms.
Leaders in the fields of transportation and mobility, Singapore, Taiwan and Canada stand out for their infrastructure, technology solutions and active public transit systems. All of these areas of expertise meet growing demand while ensuring economic, social and ecological sustainability.
The expertise of Canada, Singapore and Taiwan in this fast-growing field makes them shine internationally. Among the technologies that use living products or their derivatives, three specialties stand out in terms of their economic contribution and fundamental knowledge: health biotechnologies, bioenergy and food biotechnologies.
