SYNOPSIS: This panel discussion will focus on issues of importance to businesses, institutions and individuals from both these nations and is particularly topical given that the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will embark on a week long visit to India from February 17 to 23. India’s GDP growth at 7.2 percent in 2017, is amongst the highest in the world. This makes India an attractive market for Canadian corporations.  In 2016, two-way merchandise trade between Canada and India was worth just around $8 billion (almost balanced equally between exports and imports). By comparison, the bilateral China Canada trade was over $ 80 billion (very unbalanced between $20 B in exports and over $60 B in imports). So clearly Canada can benefit by furthering its trade relations with one of the largest and fastest growing emerging markets.

Some of the questions that this panel will discuss include:

  • What should the areas of focus be for both India and Canada?
  • Should Canada look to India as it looks to diversify its trade relationship in a potentially post-NAFTA world?
  • What role can the diaspora play in furthering India-Canada economic relations?
  • What is the role of higher educational institutions and research centres?
