FOREIGN Affairs Minister Melanie Joly told the Indo Canadian Business Chamber in New Delhi last week that the “economic potential contained in strengthening the Canada-India relationship can’t be understated.”
She added: “Harnessing this requires more engagement between our governments, our people, businesses, and partners like the [Indo Canadian Business Chamber].”
Indian External Affairs Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar said that he had a wide-ranging conversation with Joly. The two discussed the G20 agenda and global developments.
Joly said: “With deep people-to-people ties, we are committed to delivering for our people, engaging through our Indo-Pacific Strategy, and furthering our collaboration from my visit last month.”
Referring to the Raisina Dialogue 2023 event, Joly said in a tweet: “Canada will answer the call for expanded and deepened engagement in India through our Indo-Pacific Strategy. With a focus on how we can take meaningful steps to deepen the ties between our two countries, we are ready to grow our presence and further our work together.”
