7th Annual Canada-India Business Forum In Mumbai Nov. 16



TORONTO—Leading executives, government representatives and investors from Canada and India will gather at Mumbai’s famed Taj Mahal Palace Hotel on November 16, 2017 for the seventh annual Canada-India Business Forum.

Hosted by the Canada-India Business Council (C-IBC) in collaboration with the Indo Canadian Business Chamber (ICBC), the forum aims to boost trade and investment between Canada and India, at a time when there is a strategic window for new opportunities.

The gathering will include participation by senior representatives of corporate India and Canada as well as senior government representation. It takes place just weeks after the C-IBC hosted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as special guest at the council’s annual dinner in Toronto celebrating Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights.

“The Prime Minister’s participation at the Annual C-IBC Diwali Gala was a foundational moment in the bilateral economic relationship between two great countries. The multi-ministerial presence in India next month will provide momentum,” said Kasi Rao, C-IBC President and CEO.

“This year’s Mumbai Forum is already receiving interest that we had not before. Global surveys show that both India and Canada rank at the top in the trust we have in our governments,” Rao said.

“The strategic window ahead is open for us, to move from confluence to convergence on trade and investment, and the broader innovation space.India is growing and in Canada we are diversifying our markets. Our organization intends to play our part in this deepening economic relationship and we’re delighted that so many of our business leaders agree.”

“Building stronger trade relationships between Canada and India is a priority for our government since Day One,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeautold at the Diwali dinner in Toronto. He noted that, “there’s an opportunity for Canada and India to forge an even stronger relationship.”

He said that three Ministers will be in India next month: Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Navdeep Bains, International Trade Minister François-Philippe Champagne and Transportation Minister Marc Garneau.
