NEW DELHI, INDIA, November 16, 2012 – Two high power delegations will visit Canada in 2013 to promote Canada-India bilateral trade following meetings between conservative Senator Asha Seth, High Commissioner of Canada to India, Mr. Stewart Beck and Chief Ministers from the Indian states of Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.
Capitalizing on the momentum created by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s visit to India, Senator Asha Seth urged Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit of Delhi and Akhilesh Yadav of Uttar Pradesh to move towards creating a friendly environment for Canadian investment.
“Canadians are eager to work with Indian states to establish Canada as a primary partner in India’s development. Our conservative team is working tirelessly to strengthen commercial and social ties with India,” said Senator Asha Seth.
Senator Seth along with Canadian and Indian officials will coordinate two delegations led by Chief Ministers Dikshit and Yadav between May and September, 2013. Canadian leaders are committed to increase annual bilateral trade between Canada and India to 15 billion dollars by 2015.
