Toronto/Gandhinagar, Jan 14 (IBNS): Canada is eager to strengthen its business ties with India, said Canada’s minister of infrastructure and communities Amarjeet Sohi.

Speaking at the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit (VGGS) 2017 held at Mahatma Mandir, Gandhinagar in India, Amarjeet Sohi recently said that Gujarat, the home to India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was the manufacturing base of Canada’s Bombardier Inc. and was a big biennial investor, according to a report in the Globe & Mail.

Modi said that Gujarat, the land of Mahatama Gandhi and Sardar Patel, both of whom fought for India’s freedom, also represented the business spirit of India.

Sohi in a Facebook post said, "There is an emphasis on signing a trade agreement with India,".

"The process was begun in 2014 and we are putting great emphasis on moving the discussions forward."

The delegation from Canada consisted of Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce, Canadian High Commissioner Nadir Patel; Canada’s Minister of Infrastructure and Communities Amarjeet Sohi and Jordan Reeves, Consul General of Canada to Mumbai.

They met with Indian ministers like Venkaiah Naidu and Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani.
