Justin Trudeau leaves today for his first official visit to India as prime minister — a six-day trip expected to focus on cultural and economic ties between the nations.
Trade between Canada and India has doubled in the last 10 years to about eight-billion dollars in 2016, and preliminary free trade talks have been underway since 2010.
Trudeau will meet with a number of Indian CEOs and business leaders and visit some of India’s biggest tourist sites.
Wheels up for India and a busy visit, focused on creating good jobs and strengthening the deep connection between the people of our two countries. 🇨🇦🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/Jg6UmL9y4S
