Canada and India seek closer economic ties


Today, the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of International Trade, was thrilled to welcome Nirmala Sitharaman, India’s Minister of State for Commerce and Industry, to the third Canada-India Ministerial Dialogue on Trade and Investment.

This meeting, held at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto, builds on an already robust relationship between Canada and India. The two ministers discussed the impressive growth in trade and investment between both countries, as well as their shared desire to further deepen this partnership. The International Trade Minister’s mandate includes a focus on growing trade opportunities between both countries, particularly for Canadian small and medium-sized businesses.

The ministers’ bilateral meeting follows one in Washington, D.C., between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi in April 2016. Full Story
