“Canada and India share a special bond and are linked by tremendous people-to-people connections. The more than one million Canadians of Indian origin make the relationship between our two countries a truly special one. I look forward to meeting with Prime Minister Modi, and further strengthening the Canada-India friendship,” said Trudeau.

This visit will help both the Prime Ministers to reaffirm the close friendship shared between the two countries. Both leaders will discuss ways to further deepen bilateral cooperation.

The Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau will be participating in various business roundtables to advance further trade and investment between Canada and India. It’s worth pointing out that Canada works closely with Indian leaders to improve economic opportunities in either of the countries.
